The Oklahoma Historical Society, State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), is pleased to announce the Oklahoma Historic Preservation Review Committee’s (HPRC) meeting schedule. 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 Ron Frantz (architect, Oklahoma City); John Hartley (prehistoric archeologist, Norman); Shirley Ballard Nero (historian, Clearview); Jana Phillips (architectural historian, Stillwater); and, Charles Wallis (historical archeologist, Norman). The HPRC’s 2021 meetings will begin at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 21 (canceled), April 15, July 15, and October 21.
Unless otherwise noted, meetings will be held in the Clark and Kay Musser Learning Lab on the first floor of the Oklahoma History Center, 800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive, Oklahoma City. The meetings are open to the public. The HPRC and SHPO encourage all interested parties to attend. The meeting agendas and NRHP nominations under consideration will be available at http://www.okhistory.org/shpo/hprc.
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.
