Agenda & Nominations

Nomination Deadlines

Nominations of Idaho properties to the National Register of Historic Places may be submitted for review by the National Register Coordinator at the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) at any time throughout the year.

Due dates for nomination submission are set to provide the lead time necessary to allow time for staff to review and comment on the draft nomination, as well as time for the preparer to make any necessary revisions.  Once approved by staff, the complete final draft of the nomination must go to the members of the Review Board in time for them to review it prior to their annual meeting.

Preparers are advised to consult with SHPO staff well before the deadline regarding the status of their nominations. Please note that submission by the due date does not guarantee that a nomination will be reviewed by the Review Board at its upcoming meeting only that the property could be selected for the agenda based on its readiness.

Deadlines for 2017 TBD
