INDOT’s Cultural Resources Office (INDOT CRO), in consultation with the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO), has updated our Historic Property Report (HPR) outline to streamline preparation and improve content. The updated HPR outline is effective from this point forward for any HPR submitted for INDOT review.
A summary of significant updates:
- National Register of Historic Places Evaluations: Only those properties that the qualified professional has determined warrant an Indiana Historic Sites and Structures Inventory (IHSSI) rating of “Notable” or “Outstanding”-using the IHSSI criteria-will be formally evaluated for the NRHP.
- Historic Contexts: Guidance for tailoring historic contexts to the themes most relevant to the built environment in the APE.
