Certified Local Goverments

CLGs and National Register Nominations

As part of the partnership between state and local governments, federal regulations require that nomination proposals be reviewed by Certified Local Government (CLG) historic preservation boards before they can be presented to the Florida National Register Review Board. In order to facilitate the review of nominations for properties that lie within the jurisdiction of a CLG, and to conform with federal regulations concerning the required notifications and review, the following procedures will be followed:

  • The Bureau of Historic Preservation will advise the CLG when someone inquires about proposing the nomination of a property which lies within the CLG's jurisdiction:
  • When a nomination proposal is not initially submitted by the CLG, the Bureau will send a copy of the proposal to the CLG for its review. The CLG's historic preservation board and the chief local official will have 60 days to comment. If both the CLG board and chief local official do not consider the property to be eligible for listing in the National Register, the proposal will not be submitted to the Florida National Register Review Board. If only one, either the preservation board or the local official, does not consider the property to be eligible, the proposal may be submitted to the Florida National Register Review Board. If comments are not received by the end of the 60 day review period, the Bureau may schedule the proposal for review by the review board.
