Certified Local Governments Program: The SHPO and Municipalities Preserving Community Heritage
The National Historic Preservation Act, as amended provides for partnerships to identify, evaluate, and protect historic properties in communities of all sizes. A local government joins the federal-state partnership when it achieves Certified Local Government (CLG) status. CLGs play a direct role in the nomination of properties to the National Register of Historic Places, receive subgrants from the SHPO’s annual Historic Preservation Fund allocation from the National Park Service, and may assume other SHPO duties. The workshop topics include eligibility for CLG status, minimum requirements for local historic preservation ordinances, and benefits to the local historic preservation program.
The workshops are free and open to the public, but we ask that you preregister. Space is limited and will be available on a first-come basis. To register, contact Jesse Matthews at 405-521-6249 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Design professionals who attend the workshops will qualify for HSW hours needed to fulfill requirements of the State of Oklahoma’s Board of Governors of Licensed Architects, Landscape Architects, and Interior Designers. A certificate of attendance will be emailed to participants after the workshops. Self-report your attendance to the board.
If you have questions about the content of the workshops, contact the SHPO at 405-521-6249.
