My name is Rolene Schliesman. I’ve been in preservation for 23 years, first in South Dakota as a preservation consultant, then in North Dakota as the SHPO National Register, Survey, and Tax Incentive Coordinator, and now with Montana as the SHPO CLG Coordinator. It’s my pleasure to offer the following CLG training. www.computerized-screening.com Agenda: Agenda Why Preserve ? What’s a CLG ? What’s a SHPO ? What’s Our Preservation History ? What are the SOI Standards ? What We’re Up to in Montana CLGs Looking Ahead Overview : Overview What YOU Know Helps Your Community ! Public SHPO NPS CLG $$$ Local Gov Hist Pres Educ Out reach Acronymns: Acronymns CLG = Certified Local Government SHPO = State Historic Preservation Office NRHP = National Register of Historic Places NHPA = National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended ACHP = Advisory Council on Historic Preservation Why Preserve ?: Why Preserve ? Why Preserve ?: Why Preserve ? Communities should be shaped by choice, not chance . . . The historic preservationist advocates the retention of places that unify and give meaning to a community. -- Constance E. Beaumont, Smart States, Better Communities Havre main street, MT SHPO Why Preserve ?: Why Preserve ? $ Rehabilitation creates new jobs during construction and later in new offices, shops, restaurants, and tourism activities. $ Revitalized buildings and historic districts attract new businesses, tourists, and visitors, stimulating retail sales and increasing sales tax revenue. Historic buildings often reflect the image of high-quality goods and services, small-town intimacy, reliability, stability, and personal attention. Why Preserve ?: Why Preserve ? Historic buildings create a sense of place, a recognized ingredient in a high quality of life. Rehabilitation is environmentally responsible as it conserves more than it consumes or tosses in the landfill. $ Federal and state tax advantages are available for rehabilitation. $ Less energy is required to rehabilitate existing buildings than to demolish and replace them with comparable new construction. Why Preserve ?: Why Preserve ? $ Reusing old buildings saves demolition costs. $ Rehabilitation is labor intensive and thus is not as influenced by rising costs of materials as new construction. $ Rehabilitation often uses local labor, keeping salary dollars in the community longer. $ Rehabilitation may require less time than new construction and can take place in stages. $ Old buildings often can be acquired for low prices. Why Preserve ?: Why Preserve ? $ Tax dollars are saved through reuse of buildings served by in-place public utilities, transportation, and other public services. $ Historic district designation does not lower property values. $ Property values may increase with historic designation, particularly in revitalized areas. $ Rehabilitated buildings returned to the tax rolls raise property tax revenues. $ Historic district designation often stimulates private investment. Why Preserve ?: Why Preserve ? $ Rehabilitated buildings may command higher rental and sales prices because of their prestige value. $ Retaining an existing building saves the need to purchase high-cost urban land. Community awareness and recognition of local heritage and historic architecture. Historic building stock is the key to Main Street efforts and downtown revitalization.

National Park Service makes the final decision on project compliance with the SOI Standards for Rehabilitation National Register of Historic Places: National Register of Historic Places The National Register of Historic Places was created in 1966 as a national list of properties worthy of preservation Properties must be nominated, approved by the State Review Board, SHPO, and the Keeper of the National Register in Washington, DC Owners and preservation commissions are encouraged to complete nomination forms The nomination process often takes about a year NRHP Protection: NRHP Protection NRHP is a mostly honorary program Listed properties receive some protection under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, and Montana’s State Antiquities Act. Both laws require consultation with SHPO. National Register properties may be protected under a preservation agreement or rehabilitation tax incentive provision. Contact SHPO. National Register properties may be protected under local ordinance. Contact your local preservation officer.
