Compliance and Review
Q: How long will the review process take?
A: Under Federal Law (36 CFR Part 800) we have 30 calendar days to review your project beginning on the date it was received by our office. We try to get the projects reviewed as quickly as possible.
Q: Can we e-mail or fax requests for SHPO comments?
A: The Florida SHPO does not accept e-mailed or fax submittals for review.
Q: I've checked the Florida Master Site File Office (FMSF) and our property is not listed there. Do I still need to submit the project for review?
A: Yes, a review of the properties in FMSF database does not constitute a sufficient review since and FMSF is not a complete list of historic resources.
Q: What is a USGS 7.5 minute quadrangle map and where do I get one?
A: The USGS quad maps are maps produced by the US Geological Survey using contour markings to show the shape and elevation of terrain. Those at a scale of 1:24,000 (1 inch = 2000 feet) show enough detail to be useful for the purposes of this review. Quad maps may be purchased from the USGS Store or you can print one off through TerraServer.
Q: Where can I find more information to care for my historic building?
A: The National Park Service publishes printed pamphlets and books--easy-to-read guidance on preserving, rehabilitating and restoring historic buildings. Preservation Briefs are short informative pamphlets on specific topics and cover all aspects of caring for historic buildings - from choosing an appropriate treatment to actually "doing" the work in a way that meets historic preservation standards.
