Agency 10. Department of Historic Resources
Chapter 20. Evaluation Criteria and Procedures for Nominations of Property to the National Register or for Designation As a National Historic Landmark

17VAC10-20-80. Revisions to properties listed in the National Register.

Four justifications exist for altering a boundary of a property previously listed in the National Register:

1. Professional error in the initial nomination;

2. Loss of historic integrity;

3. Recognition of additional significance;

4. Additional research documenting that a larger or smaller area should be listed.

The director shall recommend no enlargement of a boundary unless the additional area possesses previously unrecognized significance in American history, architecture, archeology, engineering or culture. The director shall recommend no diminution of a boundary unless the properties recommended for removal do not meet the National Register criteria for evaluation.
