NPS Accepting Comments on Proposed Rule for NRHP Inclusion

Tuesday, April 9, 2019 - 1:00pm

The National Park Service will accept comments through the end of April on a proposed rule published in the National Register to revise regulations concerning the listing of properties on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). The proposed rule would include changes to implement 2016 amendments to the NRHP, allow the owners of a majority of land area in a proposed historic district veto power over its listing, extend the timeline to respond to appeals of the failure of a nominating authority to nominate a property for inclusion in the National Register and other minor changes.
