As the built-environment ages, public and private projects are more frequently needing to address potential impacts to historic resources. This program presented by Association of Environmental Professionals (AEP) Superior California Chapter will increase your knowledge and understanding of the state and federal regulations and standards for identifying and mitigating impacts to historic resources. The discussion will cover the requirements of the National Historic Preservation Act, the Secretary of the Interior Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties, and CEQA; the criteria used to evaluate whether a property is eligible for listing in the state or federal registers, and considerations for evaluating project alternatives.
