Nomination Deadlines

Review Process:
Whether prepared by private citizens or by consultants, most nominations go through at least two drafts before consideration by the Historic Sites Board of Review (HSBR) at one of its meetings. SHPO staff will provide written comments and a marked copy of the nomination to the preparer.

Before our office will schedule a nomination 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 requested revisions, if applicable.

Meeting Schedule
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. Every nomination must go before the Historic Sites Board of Review.

Only complete, properly documented nominations will go before the Board. The SHPO staff will notify you once the requirements above have been met. 

Scheduling nominations for an agenda is based on priorities, workload, and federal/state noticing requirements. There is no guaranteed date unless the SHPO staff has sent you a letter with the meeting date. 

Deadlines are continuous throughout the year. Please call the SHPO office to discuss a timeline for review of your nomination. Contact us at 785-272-8681 ext. 240 or kshs.register@ks.gov
