RE:                  Historic Preservation Committee Requests for Board Action




The Historic Preservation Committee has recently sent letters of concern to various legislators regarding two current legislative issues:

  1. Changes to Section 106 of the Historic Preservation Act
  2. Tax incentives for conservation easements


Proposed changes to these pieces of legislation could have significant negative impacts on our historic and cultural resources, and on conservation easements. The Committee has asked that the Board of Supervisors express its commitment to preservation and conservation by sending similar letters of concern regarding the proposed changes.


The Committee’s letters are attached to this memo. The letters outline the issues and could be used as a basis for the Board’s letters.


Thank you for considering this request of the Historic Preservation Committee.
