Section 106 Review

Federal agencies and their delegates that are required to consult with the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) about potential impacts that federal projects may have on historic properties listed in or determined to be eligible for the National Register of Historic Places (NPS), are required by city ordinance to notify and consult with the Dickinson Historic Preservation Commission when the project falls within Dickinson city limits. To do so, submit the Section 106 checklist form for review to the Historic Preservationist at the Dickinson Museum Center.

Local Landmark Program

In 2008, the Dickinson Historic Preservation Commission created the Local Landmark Program. Click here for information on the program. The Local Landmark Program was created to acknowledge and honor properties that are considered to be historically significant to the local community. Properties must be within the Dickinson city limits and may or may not qualify for the National Register of Historic Places.
