SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

The National Register of Historic Places (National Register) is the official Federal list of districts, sites, buildings, structures, and objects significant in American history, architecture, archeology, engineering, and culture. National Register properties have significance to the history of communities, States, or the Nation. The National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 requires the Secretary of the Interior to maintain and expand the National Register, and to establish criteria and guidelines for including properties on the National Register. National Register properties must be considered in the planning for Federal or federally assisted projects, and listing in the National Register is required for eligibility for Federal rehabilitation tax incentives. The National Park Service administers the National Register. Nominations for listing historic properties come from State Historic Preservation Officers (SHPO), from Federal Preservation Officers (FPO), for properties owned or controlled by the United States Government, and from Tribal Historic Preservation Officers (THPO), for properties on tribal lands. Private individuals and organizations, local governments, and American Indian tribes often initiate this process and prepare the necessary documentation. Regulations at 36 CFR 60 and 63 establish the criteria and guidelines for listing and for determining the eligibility of properties. We use three forms for nominating properties and providing documentation for the proposed listings:

  • NPS Form 10-900 (National Register of Historic Places Registration Form).
  • NPS Form 10-900-a (National Register of Historic Places Continuation Sheet).
  • NPS Form 10-900-b (National Register of Historic Places Multiple Property Documentation Form).

This Notice provides additional information regarding the packages submitted to the NPS and to expand the details for our burden from the original Notice published on January 28, 2015 (80 FR 4589). The following are the five types of package submissions the NPS receives from the SHPOs, FPOs, and/or THPOs with the respective burden estimates broken down by state in Section II below:

  • 36 CFR 60 and 63, National Register of Historic Places Registration Nomination Form; Continuation Sheet; NR Multiple Property Submission Multiple Property Documentation Form Submitted to State & Local Gov't by Individuals or Households (Forms 10-900, 10-900-a and 10-900-b)—packages submitted by nonconsultants;
  • Individual Nominations Submitted to State & Local Gov't by Consultants (Forms 10-900 and 10-900-a)—Packages submitted by paid consultants;
  • District Nominations Submitted to State and Local Gov't by Consultants (Form 10-900 and 10-900-a)—Packages submitted by paid consultants;
  • Nominations Submitted under Existing MPS Covers to State & Local Gov't by Consultants (Forms 10-900 and 10-900-a)—Packages submitted by paid consultants; and
  • Newly Proposed MPS Cover Document Submitted to State & Local Gov't by Consultants (Forms 10-900-b and 10-900-a)—Packages submitted by paid consultants.

These forms and supporting documentation go to the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) of the State [or FPO, or THPO, respectively] where the property is located. The State Historic Preservation Officer, Federal Preservation Officer, or Tribal Historic Preservation Officer can take one of several options: Reject the property, ask for more information, (or in the case of the SHPO, list the property just with the State), or send the forms to us for listing on the National Register. An appeals process is also available to any person or local government for the failure or refusal of a nominating authority to nominate a property. Once NPS receive the forms, NPS conducts a similar review process.

Listing on the National Register provides formal recognition of a property's historical, architectural, or archeological significance based on national standards used by every State. The listing places no obligations on private property owners, and there are no restrictions on the use, treatment, transfer, or disposition of private property.
