Chapter 20. Evaluation Criteria and Procedures for Nominations of Property to the National Register or for Designation As a National Historic Landmark

17VAC10-20-190. Submission of nominations to the National Park Service.

The director shall review nominations approved by the State Review Board, along with all comments received. If the director finds the nominations to be adequately documented and technically, professionally, and procedurally correct and sufficient and in conformance with National Register criteria for evaluation, the director may submit them to the Keeper of the National Register of Historic Places, National Park Service, United States Department of the Interior, Washington, D.C. 20240. The director shall include all written comments received and all notarized statements of objection with the nomination when it is submitted to the keeper.

If the director and the State Review Board disagree on whether a property meets the National Register criteria for evaluation, the director may submit the nomination with his opinion concerning whether or not the property meets the criteria for evaluation and the opinion of the State Review Board to the Keeper of the National Register for a final decision on the listing of the property. The director shall submit such disputed nominations if so requested within 45 days of the State Review Board meeting by the State Review Board or the chief elected local official of the county, city, or town in which the property is located but need not otherwise do so.

Any person or organization which supports or opposes the nomination of a property by a State Historic Preservation Officer may petition the keeper during the nomination process either to accept or reject a nomination. The petitioner must state the grounds of the petition and request in writing that the keeper substantively review the nomination.
