About Us > Historic Preservation Review & Compliance
All federally funded, assisted, and licensed activities must take into account properties which are listed in, or determined eligible for, the National Register, so that any adverse effects can be avoided or mitigated; and there is a similar set of New Hampshire requirements for state-funded or contracted activities. This procedure does not, and is not meant, to stop projects; instead, it provides a conflict-resolution and problem-solving system to balance the public interest in historic preservation with the public benefit from governmental programs. As with the NH DOT-funded surveys, information and opportunities identified through the Review & Compliance process can be used to advance local preservation and land-use planning activity, or to enhance preservation elements of multi-purpose projects.
