On June 3, 2022, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced a new effort to modernize the Civil Works program through a number of policy related issues. Most notably, the Corps said it will consider rulemaking actions regarding its use of Appendix C to meet its responsibilities under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act for its Regulatory Program. The Corps has asked Section 106 stakeholders to share their experiences with Appendix C, and the challenges they encounter in protecting historic properties when using it by the end of July.
At ACRA’s request, the Army Corps of Engineers has agreed to hold a special virtual listening session for ACRA member firms to discuss the potential changes. In the session, the Corps will brief us on their process and give firms a chance to share their views. The listening session will be Wednesday, July 13, 2022, from 1:30-3:00 pm EDT.
This session is open only to employees of ACRA member firms.
