Section 106 Compliance

Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) of 1966 requires Federal agencies to consider the effects of federally funded projects on historic properties. Section 106 covers a broad range of projects, including ground disturbances, changes to an area’s visual characteristics, and construction, renovation, repair, or rehabilitation. An historic property is any property that is included in, or eligible for inclusion in, the National Register of Historic Places (National Register). National Register-listed or -eligible properties can be buildings, structures, sites, objects and districts. Historic properties also include artifacts, records, and remains related to and located within such properties, and properties of traditional religious and cultural importance to an Indian tribe or Native Hawaiian organization. Morgan, Angel & Associates has extensive experience in documenting and determining the significance of historic sites with the goal of compliance with Sections 106 and 4(f) of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966.

 

Our associates conduct the necessary field survey and documentary research to determine the historic significance of homes, businesses and linear resources. We present these findings to state and tribal historic preservation officers and municipal and local historic preservation commissions. Morgan Angel staffers have produced historic contexts for the Colorado highway system and the post-war development of Denver’s suburban subdivisions. We also have experience with National Environmental Policy (NEPA) documentation and crafting and submitting Environmental Assessments and Environmental Impact Statements.

Beyond private and commercial properties and linear resources (such as railroads and irrigation ditches), Morgan Angel has specialized experience in helping clients comply with FCC regulations regarding the construction and relocation of broadcast towers and for proposed wireless telecommunications facilities. We are capable of performing the entire comprehensive due diligence and research required in order to comply with the FCC's rules.
