The Plan for Lower Manhattan > Section 106Section 106 Process
In order to comply with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 (NHPA), LMDC is involved in a coordinated federal and state agency review of properties either listed in or determined eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. Normally the process involves a single agency and a single project, but due to the close proximity of three federally-sponsored projects to the site and due to the significance of the event, the Section 106 processes have been coordinated to the extent possible. The three projects are the WTC Memorial and Redevelopment Plan, the Permanent PATH Terminal, and the Route 9A Reconstruction project.
The Section 106 process is divided into four sequential steps: Initiation of the Section 106 Process, Identification of Historic Properties, Assessment of Adverse Effects on Eligible Properties, and Resolution of Adverse Effects. On February 6, 2004, the six federal and state agencies sponsoring projects at the WTC Site jointly determined the WTC site's eligibility for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places. Each project will assess effects on eligible historic resources individually.
