Case Study Report - Historic Preservation
Orange Avenue Redevelopment Project Impacts to Historic Resources
Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act requires agencies to consider the effects of their projects on historic resources. Section 106 follows a four-step process:
- INITIATE the process
- IDENTIFY historic properties
- ASSESS adverse effects
- RESOLVE adverse effects
During this process, the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) has determined that the Orange Avenue Apartments are a significant historic resource, and the redevelopment project will have an adverse effect on the resource. THA will work with residents and SHPO to determine ways to resolve the adverse effect.
THA will discuss the adverse effect in upcoming resident meetings and will solicit public input on potential mitigation measures. Additional information on the project, the history of Orange Avenue Apartments, and the adverse effect can be found on this site.
