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

17VAC10-20-210. Boundary changes.

The director may initiate the process for changing the boundaries of a previously listed National Register property upon concluding that one or more of the conditions set out in 17VAC10-20-70 has been met. In addition, any person or organization may petition in writing to have a boundary changed.

A boundary alteration shall be considered as a new property nomination. In the case of boundary enlargements the notification procedures set out in Part IV of this chapter (17VAC10-20-130 et seq.) shall apply. However, only the additional area proposed for nomination to the National Register shall be used to determine the property owners and the adjacent property owners to receive notification pursuant to 17VAC10-20-130 and 17VAC10-20-140. Only the owners of the property in the additional area shall be counted in determining whether a majority of private owners object to listing in the National Register. In the case of a proposed diminution of a boundary, the director shall notify the property owners and the chief elected local official and give them an opportunity to comment prior to submitting any proposal to the Keeper of the National Register.
