Public Input (SHPO)

Federal and state law requires that governments and agencies must involve the public in any undertaking that may affect historic or archaeological resources.

Governments and agencies can choose how to fulfill this requirement, but in general, the public can comment during any part of the process as undertakings are reviewed for compliance with the law.

(The federal law states, “The views of the public are essential to informed Federal decisionmaking.”)

If you are concerned about a project on public lands, or a project on private lands that is partly funded by state or federal government, contact us, and we can let you know where that project is in the review process. (The process is similar for state and federal projects.)

For projects affecting historic buildings, contact Chris Hansen at 801-245-7239.

For projects affecting archaeological resources, contact Lori Hunsaker at 801-245-7241.
