Historic Preservation Advisory Committee Procedures 2022

Rule Timeline Adopted.png


Beginning May 1, Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) accepted public comments on proposed changes to the process for commenting on National Register nominations before the State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation (SACHP), a 9-member governor-appointed group of persons representative of the state with an interest or expertise in history, archaeology, architecture, and other disciplines. Public comments were accepted until 5:00 p.m. May 31, 2022.

The proposed rule would change the process to submit comments on proposed nominations for properties to the federal National Register of Historic Places during public meetings of the SACHP. Under the new rule, comments would be submitted to OPRD staff who would share comments with the committee members during the meeting. Any comments not material to the nomination would not be shared.

Public Comments

The public commenting period closed at 5:00pm, May 31, 2022.

After reviewing public comments, OPRD staff plan to present a final recommended rule for consideration to the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Commission.
