As part of its Continuing Education program, ACRA is pleased to present a webinar entitled “Section 106 Review for Planners and CRM Professionals.” This webinar, an updated and advanced version of the program of the same name offered in Fall 2016, provides cultural resource and planning professionals guidance on the required process for federally funded projects to identify and mitigate impacts on historic and cultural properties. The process is outlined in Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and administered by the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation.
The webinar will address program requirements, how and when local governments and cultural resource professionals are involved in the process, and it will provide examples of actual projects and mitigation strategies. The class includes handouts and exercises designed to assist participants in understanding and better managing their involvement in the process.
ACRA’s expert provider is Marty McCune. Ms. McCune spent twenty-seven years working in historic preservation and cultural resource management in local government, and has worked the past eight years as a private consultant. She retired from the City of Tucson, Arizona where she served from 1996 to 2008 as the City’s first Historic Preservation Officer, managing a comprehensive cultural resource program. Prior to this position, she worked for the City of Yuma, Arizona for fifteen years, administering the City’s Community Development Block Grant entitlement program of just under $1 million and directing the City’s historic preservation program from its inception in 1983. Before her employment with the City of Yuma, she worked for ten years in the development and management of affordable housing and training managers of affordable housing.
