Cultural Resources Program

Preserving Picatinny Arsenal's cultural and military heritage for future generations

Decision to Implement Army Alternate Procedures (AAP) to Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA)

-- Letter to ACSIM, HQ 26 March 2008

            -- Streamlines NHPA consultation with the NJ Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) programmatically, instead of on a case-by-
                case basis with public Stakeholders (i.e. Federally-recognized Tribes and interested historical organizations)
            -- Implements better Standard Operating Procedures within the installation's Integrated Cultural Resource Management Plan
            -- Improves stewardship and fundamental management of Historic Properties through the Historic Property Component Plan
            -- Aligns favorably with the military mission requirements and goals of completing projects efficiently
            -- Estimated 1 ½ - 2 yr completion for AAP/HPC Plan finalization by approximately Summer 2010
