ACHP Seeks Advice

The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) has just published a notice requesting advice from interested parties about how its National Historic Preservation Act Section 106 regulatory process (outlined at 36 CFR 800) might be improved to make it more effective and less burdensome.  This is in response to President Obama's Executive Order 13563, which directed all rulemaking agencies to undertake such a review.

The ACHP's request, which includes specific questions to which it solicits responses, can be accessed at http://www.achp.gov/EO_13563.pdf .  I'd certainly encourage everyone interested in how the Section 106 process does and doesn't work to take a close look at the request, and respond to it.
