									                                     Historic Preservation
A. Compliance: All University/Campus undertakings shall be conducted in accordance with the
   Illinois State Agency Historic Resources Preservation Act (20 ILCS 3420/1 et.seq.) [PA-86-
   707] and the Rules for Review of State Agency Undertakings (ILAC Title 17, Chapter VI, Part
   4180). The subject act, commonly known as 707, became effective on January 1, 1990. 707
   legislation was passed to ensure that State agencies take into account their actions’ impacts
   on historic resources. 707 legislation closely parallels the requirements of Section 106 of
   the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 of which the University/Campus has
   compliance responsibility if federal agencies are involved in University/Campus undertakings.

    The University/Campus will have compliance responsibility for additional state or federal
    historic preservation legislation depending on the nature of the undertaking to be carried out.
    Potentially applicable acts are listed in the UIUC Historic Preservation Plan and identified at
    the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency (IHPA) Internet site

    All projects undertaken by the University/Campus involving historic resources will be subject
    to the recommended approaches of the Secretary of Interior’s Standards and Guidelines for
    Archaeology and Historic Preservation.

    University/Campus projects addressing National Register of Historic Places listed or eligible
    for listing historic resources are subject to the recommended approaches of the Secretary of
    Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties and the applicable Guidelines for
    Preserving, Rehabilitating, Restoring and Reconstructing Historic Buildings or other applicable
    historic resources related to the Secretary of Interior’s Standards and Guidelines.

B. Point of Contact: The Director of the Office of Planning, Design and Construction (PD&C)
   serves as the Campus Historic Preservation Officer (CHPO). An appointed Assistant Director
   of PD&C serves as the Deputy CHPO (DCHPO). The DCHPO is the Campus liaison with
   IHPA, also known as the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), the general public and
   entities on Campus regarding historic preservation issues.

    Any campus entity (e.g. O&M, departmental personnel, or University retained
    contractor/consultant/designer/planner) who is planning or is preparing to physically conduct
    an undertaking on campus properties shall coordinate with the DCHPO to ensure that
    property project-related preservation fiscal components, the need for project-related
    preservation consultants, applicable standards and guidelines and general compliance
    coordination activities are identified, acquired and completed.
