This lunch and learn is being presented by the State Historic Preservation Office. With the myriad of tasks it takes to plan and open a new branch or banking facility, fulfilling the federal requirements for addressing historic properties should not be made more difficult or expensive by lack of information. This session will cover the following topics:
- Federal laws and regulations governing identification and consideration of historic properties;
- What a historic property is;
- How to determine the presence of a historic property;
- Process for dealing with a historic property affected by your plans under federal and local preservation regulations;
- The several players in the process
In addition, attendees will review case studies and lessons learned from actual banking projects that affected historic properties. You won’t want to miss this informative session!
