State Review Board

The Minnesota State Historic Preservation Review Board considers whether a property meets National Register criteria. Once a nomination is recommended for approval, it is sent to the State Historic Preservation Officer for signature and then to the Keeper of the National Register in Washington, D.C., for final review and approval.

Meetings are held virtually via Webex Meetings. Visit the Review Board Meeting page for more information.

State Review Board Meeting Schedule and Deadlines

The Minnesota Historic Structure Rehabilitation Tax Credit and the Minnesota Historical and Cultural Grants program have substantially increased the number of projects submitted to the Minnesota State Historic Preservation Office for review. We understand also that this has increased the workload for consultants. For regulatory notification purposes nomination documentation for properties located in Certified Local Governments (CLG) must be submitted earlier than those not located in CLG communities. Below are the 2021 and 2022 meeting dates for the Minnesota State Historic Preservation Review Board. These dates, and their corresponding deadlines, will allow you to plan accordingly. We must stress that in our effort to be fair to all the SHPO can no longer set aside one project to work on another that has arrived after the stated deadline. Please respect these deadlines.

2021 Meeting Date CLG Deadline Non CLG Deadline
February 16, 2021 November 10, 2020 December 8, 2020

2022 Meeting Date CLG Deadline Non CLG Deadline
February 15, 2022* November 12, 2021 December 7, 2021
April 12, 2022* January 4, 2022 February 1, 2022

*If the property is also participating in the Minnesota Historic Structure Rehabilitation Tax Credit program please visit the State Tax Incentives page for more information on that program.

As outlined above, if a nominated property is located within an area where the unit of government has Certified Local Government (CLG) status, the complete nomination package must be submitted by the date in the center column (CLG). If the unit of government does not have CLG status, the date in the third column (Non CLG) applies.

A complete nomination package includes a nomination and its corresponding additional information, all of which has been reviewed by the SHPO and found acceptable. (Important note: as you know, preparing a nomination is a complex process and at times a draft nomination will go through several reviews). Nominations are reviewed in the order received, and if a nomination arrives on a CLG or Non CLG submission date and is not complete, it will not be placed on the review board agenda.

We appreciate your help with this effort.
