Section 106 Consultation
Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (P.L. 108-72) requires federal agencies to take into account the effects of their “undertakings” on cultural resources that are on or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. Procedures for consultation under Section 106 are issued by the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP), an independent federal agency that oversees the Section 106 process to ensure it is being conducted correctly. The current regulations, 36 C.F.R. Part 800 can be found on the website of the Advisory Council.
In accordance with these regulations, the National Park Service is engaging consulting parties throughout the development of the Pennsylvania Avenue Plan/Environmental Assessment. Please continue to check back here for updates on Section 106 meetings and other related information.
