Annual Review and Compliance Cultural Resource Management Seminar

Friday, March 11th, 2011

The Annual Review and Compliance seminars hosted by the Minnesota State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) will resume in a half-day session held on Tuesday, April 26, 2011 in the 3M Auditorium of the Minnesota History Center, from 1:00 to 5:00 pm.

In 2010, the Minnesota SHPO’s Review and Compliance function was restructured to handle a significantly increased workload.  Seminar participants will meet Compliance Staff members, learn their roles and responsibilities, and discuss how best to communicate about project-related issues.  Further, agency and consultant participants will be asked for input into the draft 2012-2017 Statewide Preservation Plan for Minnesota.

Several technical issues involving cultural resource management will be presented, including archaeological review of cable plow projects, managing visual impacts to historic properties, and digital photographic standards for historic property records. Additionally, compliance staff will be available to answer questions, and networking opportunities will be available during the break.

Registration for the seminar is $10, including refreshments.  Register on-line or use the mail-in registration form.

The History Center is open free of charge on Tuesday evenings, so plan to stay after the session to tour our exhibits.  History Center parking is $5, and the café will be open before and after the seminar for those who wish to purchase lunch or a snack.

For more information call Michele Decker at 651-259-3450.
