DAHP Academy

The Washington State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) is pleased to offer training through DAHP Academy, our in-house education program for both professionals and the general public.  At the training, our staff of professionals with expertise in archaeology, architectural history, preservation techniques and history, will focus on specific issues relating to historic preservation and the office’s various programs. While each session will focus on a particular topic in which staff will go into depth, you will also hear about the latest preservation news and learn about new office policies toward protecting Washington rich cultural resources.

All DAHP Academy trainings are free, but are limited in space due to the size of the training facility. 

Training Topics May include:

National Register of Historic Places Tax Credits

Archaological Surveys

Section 106 SEPA Historic Resource Survey

Historic Property - Inventory, Evaluation & Consultation

To follow up on the HPI FAQ we sent out in August 2019 and our updated Standards for Cultural Resource Reporting, the Washington Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation (DAHP) is happy to announce that we will be hosting an east-side DAHP Academy for Historic Property Inventory Forms in SPOKANE. Topics to be discussed include: How to Complete a Historic Property Inventory Form; How to Evaluate Built Environment Resources for the National Register; and How to Consult with DAHP

The topics will primarily center around HPIs that are reviewed under a regulatory process (Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, Governor’s Executive Order 05-05, and SEPA). If you complete HPIs for Section 106, Governor’s Executive Order 05-05, or SEPA projects, or work for a lead agency that has submitted HPIs for DAHP review, this is a great opportunity for us all to meet and discuss expectations and the processes overall. Please be aware that this session will not be relevant for EZ-2 users.

Date: Thursday April 16, 2020: 9am – 12:30 pm

Location:

Spokane Falls Community College
3410 W Fort George Wright Drive
Spokane, WA 99224-5288
Student Union Building #17, Room 102/103

Venue note: DAHP will not be providing food or drinks. The location has several options, please feel free to bring them with you. Parking is $3/per vehicle on campus, and parking passes can be purchased in advance through NuPark an online parking system.

Area of Potential Effects (APEs): A Robust Dialogue

The intent of this session will be to provide DAHP an opportunity to present to our consultation partners through Section 106 and Governor’s Executive Order 05-05 our expectations for how their Areas of Potential Effects (APEs) are defined, and the information we need to make informed, legally sound, decisions. It will be an excellent opportunity for those who work for tribal, federal, state, or local governments, or consultants who are asked to define APEs, to hear from DAHP staff what the agency is looking for when reviewing these APEs.

This session is solely dedicated to discussions regarding APEs. This is a separate discussion from the methodology effort that would subsequently occur within the APE, on which DAHP expects to be consulted separately. A separate DAHP Academy will likely be offered on methodologies, but has not yet been planned. Stay tuned!

We are currently only hosting one session on APEs, and the maximum capacity is 75. While this session is open to anyone wishing to attend, our primary audience is anticipated to be lead federal and state agencies who define APEs under provisions of Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and its implementing regulations 36 CFR 800, or Governor’s Executive Order 05-05, or consultants who are asked to define APEs on their behalf. NOTE this session is not relevant for EZ-2 users.

Should registration be full before you are able to register, please contact DAHP directly, and we will send a link to the waiting list.
