Section 4(f) Compliance for Historic Properties


Detailed Seminar Agenda

Seminar Overview

Section 4(f) of the DOT Act of 1966 is triggered by projects funded or approved by a U.S. DOT agency that propose the use of historic property or land from a publicly owned park, recreation area, or refuge. Examine the stringent approval standards of this substantive law and discuss ways to better integrate and streamline Sections 4(f) and 106 with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process.

Faculty

Joe Trnka, AICP, CEP, NEPA specialist with Kirkham Michael; specializes in NEPA, Section 106, and Section 4(f) projects

Evaluation Comments

"Clarified issues about when to use and when not to use 4(f)."

"A wonderful course; very informative and thought-provoking."
