CFB Policy Watch: HB 19-1078 Landowners consent for national register designation
HB19-1078 requires that if the property is up for determination, that consent must be obtained from the landowner for the parcel to be included in a historic designation. National historic designation is a great opportunity for some landowners but should ultimately be a property right and a choice that both the land owner and the society take part in together.
By current law, a piece of property can be nominated to be included in the state historic register by an owner, a local government, an agency or the society itself. Upon nomination, the society can make a determination based on various sources of information.
CFB is supportive of HB19-1078. The bill has been calendared for committee hearing Monday, February 11th. Contact Emily, firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions.
