Meetings

The Board of Historic Resources and the State Review Board meet quarterly to consider new nominations of historic sites for listing in the Virginia Landmarks Register (VLR) and the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). The two boards also consider proposed updates and boundary increases to nominations for sites previously listed in the VLR and NRHP.

Additionally, the Board of Historic Resources considers new or proposed updates to historical highway markers, and new preservation easements. The State Review Board reviews and evaluates Preliminary Information Forms (PIFs) that DHR staff has requested to be considered. On occasion, the boards convene for special meetings, which are announced here in advance.

Prior to each quarterly meeting, DHR posts information about new nominations, highway markers, easements, and PIFs on this webpage, along with an agenda for the meeting.

The public is welcome to attend quarterly and special board meetings. Check below for time, place, and draft agenda for each meeting.

Nominations

The nominations below will be considered for listing on the Virginia Landmarks Register (VLR) and the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) during a joint meeting of DHR's two boards on June 21. The public is encouraged to attend.

UPDATE on June 21 Agenda: In deference to members of the public who have requested additional time to learn more about the impacts of listing on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register, consideration of the expansion of the existing Manchester Residential & Commercial Historic District (to include Blackwell, in Richmond) has been removed from the June 21, 2018 agenda of the Board of Historic Resources and the State Review Board.
   The next regularly scheduled joint board meeting is September 20, 2018. That meeting will be held in Petersburg. Owner notification letters for this meeting will be mailed the week of July 16th. DHR will seek assistance from the community in spreading the word and educating residents about why recognizing and documenting the neighborhood's history is important. Meanwhile, here are links to the Blackwell Historic District nomination, photos, and map.
