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.

Seats are available and posted for the State Review Board. Complete information is available from the Minnesota Secretary of State

2020 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 work load 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 2020 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.

Meeting Date CLG Deadline Non CLG Deadline
March 24, 2020 December 17, 2019 January 14, 2020
May 12, 2020 February 4, 2020 March 3, 2020
August 18, 2020 May 11, 2020 June 9, 2020
November 10, 2020 August 4, 2020 September 1, 2020


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.
