The Oklahoma Historical Society, State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) is pleased to announce the Oklahoma Historic Preservation Review Committee’s (HPRC) meeting schedule for calendar year 2016. The governor appoints the members of the HPRC to advise the SHPO about nominations to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) and other preservation issues. Current HPRC members include William P. Corbett (historian, Tahlequah); Ron Frantz (architect, Oklahoma City); John D. Hartley (prehistoric archaeologist, Norman); Arn Henderson (architectural historian, Norman); and Charles S. Wallis (historical archaeologist, Norman). The HPRC’s 2016 meetings will begin at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 21, April 21, July 21 and October 20.
The meetings are open to the public and will be held in the Oklahoma Historical Society’s LeRoy H. Fischer Boardroom at the Oklahoma History Center, located at 800 Nazih Zuhdi Dr. in Oklahoma City. The HPRC and the SHPO encourage all interested parties to attend, and meeting agendas and NRHP nominations under consideration will be available at okhistory.org/shpo/spevents.htm.
The National Park Service regulations governing the SHPO’s programs require that a qualified state review board participate in the NRHP and other SHPO programs. During each meeting, the HPRC hears presentations on NRHP nominations from SHPO staff and consultants; receives comments from owners of properties proposed for nomination; listens to public comments and concerns; and formulates recommendations to the SHPO about whether or not a property should be nominated. The HPRC and SHPO staff invite concerned citizens and preservation professionals to participate in this important component of Oklahoma’s preservation program.
