drawings of the proposed changes
should be enclosed in the
application package (or provided
later when available).
Final Points to Remember
(Part I)
• Submit photographs of all historic structures.
• All photographs should be keyed to a site
plan or map to show their location and
direction of view.
• The presence of historic structures in the
project area does not automatically mean that
the project cannot be funded.
Final Points to Remember
(Part II)
• Include all necessary documentation in the
application to facilitate a timely review.
• Contact the Historic Preservation Planner at
the appropriate Regional Development
Center.
• For complex projects or projects that may
have adverse effects to historic structures
and/or archaeological sites, hire a qualified
historic preservation professional.
