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

2021 State Review Board Meeting Schedule and Deadlines

Below are the 2021 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.

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.
