Proposed Changes to National Register of Historic Places
On March 1, 2019, the National Park Service (NPS) proposed making significant changes to regulations regarding nominations to the National Register of Historic Places. These changes would shift authority away from state, local, and tribal entities and give unprecedented power to federal agencies and large private landowners to stymie local historic preservation efforts.
The NPS is accepting public comments on the proposed changes through April 30. We encourage you to go to regulations.gov and click the "Comment Now!" button to make your voice heard.
