Nomination Deadlines

Nominations of Kansas properties to the National Register of Historic Places and/or the Register of Historic Kansas Places may be submitted for review by the National Register staff at the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) at any time throughout the year. Per National Register of Historic Places Federal Regulations, SHPO has 60 days to review submitted nominations (36 CFR 60.11(a)).

Every nomination must go before the Historic Sites Board of Review. Before a nomination is scheduled for a Review Board meeting, the following three requirements must be met:

  1. Property has been evaluated for eligibility by SHPO (see List a Property)
  2. An initial draft has been reviewed by SHPO
  3. The final submittal incorporates suggested revisions, if applicable

Preparers are advised to consult with SHPO staff well before the deadline regarding the status of their nominations. Please note that submission by the due date does not guarantee that a nomination will be reviewed by the Review Board at its upcoming meeting only that the property could be selected for the agenda based on its readiness.

The following deadlines are set to provide adequate time for SHPO to complete requirements set out in National Register of Historic Places Federal Regulations (36 CFR 60) and to give the members of the Review Board adequate time to review nominations prior to their meeting:
