The National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA, other Federal authorities, and a growing number of State and local laws, ordinances, and policies require or encourage the consideration of historic properties in the planning and implementation of land use and development projects. In order for such consideration to occur, historic properties must be identified, preferably at an early planning stage, and in an orderly manner. This publication is designed to assist managers in identifying historic properties. It is based on the experience of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation and the Department of the Interior in considering historic properties under Section 106 of NHPA and related Federal authorities. This publication sets out basic principles and approaches that should be considered when designing an effort to identify historic properties, and discusses how to apply these principles and approaches under varying circumstances.
