When Do You Need Historic Preservation Review?
Project review consists of identifying a project's potential impacts to historic buildings and structures, historic districts, historic landscapes and settings, and to known or potential archaeological resources. Project review is a consultative process between the applicant and VDHP.
If your project involves federal or state funding, licenses or permits, the Vermont State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) must review the effects to historic and cultural resources. In Vermont, the SHPO is also known as the Division for Historic Preservation. Is your Property Eligible?
For relevant laws and regulations, please visit our Resources and Rules page.
Applicants are encouraged to contact VDHP early and often in the project planning process.
To begin the project review and consultation process, make sure your project addresses everything on our Checklist for Historic Preservation Review.
If you have any questions about this process, please feel free to contact us. Who can help with your review?
Project review applications can be submitted to the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation (VDHP) at ACCD.firstname.lastname@example.org.
