Submitting a Project for Review

SHPO Environmental Review COVID-19 Update

How to Submit a Project for Review

1. Before You Submit

Federal and state preservation laws require agencies (or their delegate agencies/applicants) to consult with our office regarding the potential for projects to affect historic resources.

To submit your project to us for review, please send project review materials electronically. You may use the optional Request for Project Review Form (see Instructions) or your letterhead to provide the following information about your project:

  • County
  • City or Township
  • Street address (if within a municipal boundary) or Township, Range, and Section of project's location (if outside of a municipal boundary)
  • Detailed description of the project
  • Names of all government agencies involved (due to permits, funding or licensing)
  • Quality, original photographs of all buildings and structures within the project area
  • Dates of construction for all buildings and structures within the project area
  • Maps indicating the project's location. (City maps are acceptable for rehabilitation and demolitions, but all projects involving ground disturbances require a copy of a USGS topographic map with the project location clearly marked.)
  • Name and email address of the person who should receive the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) comment letter.

Send project review requests by email, with digital attachments, to

Supplying the above materials will increase the likelihood that project review can be completed within the initial allotted 30-day review period. If we need to request additional information from you, project review is suspended until the additional information is received, and then the 30- day clock starts over. Note: any "due date" submitted by your organization will not override the regulatory allowance of up to 30 days from date of receipt for project review.
