Nominations to National Register of Historic

(a) Initiation of nominations.  Any person or group, including the city, may request that a property be nominated to the National Register of Historic Places.  Nominations shall comply in form and content with the requirements of 36 CFR Chapter I, part 60.  As a participant in the certified local government program, the city must participate in and make recommendations on all local nominations to the National Register of Historic Places.  The city commission and the board shall each submit recommendations on each proposed nomination to the Kentucky Heritage Council, which will then refer the nomination to the State Historic Preservation Review Board for determination of the property's significance and eligibility for the National Register.  Before making their recommendations to the Kentucky Heritage Council, the commission and the board shall obtain comments from the public, which comments shall be included in their National Register recommendations.  Within sixty (60) days of the receipt of a notice of intent to nominate a property to the National Register, or receipt of a request for nomination from a private individual or the initiation of a nomination by the city or by the board, the city shall inform the Kentucky Heritage Council and the owner of the property of the two (2) recommendations regarding the eligibility of the property.  If the commission and the board agree that a property should be nominated, the recommendation for nomination shall be forwarded to the Kentucky Heritage Council for a preliminary review by the Kentucky Historic Preservation Review Board.  If the commission and the board do not agree, both opinions shall be forwarded in the city's report.  If both the commission and the board recommend that a property not be nominated, the Kentucky Heritage Council shall inform the property owner, the Kentucky Historic Preservation Review Board and the State Historic Preservation Officer of the negative recommendation.  In all cases, whether positive or negative, the comments and recommendation of the Board of Architectural Review shall be forwarded to the Kentucky Heritage Council.

     (b)     Review of the nomination.  The comments and recommendations of the commissioners and of the board shall be forwarded to the Kentucky Heritage Council for a preliminary review by the Kentucky Historic Preservation Review Board.  The Review Board shall make a recommendation to the state historic preservation officer to approve or disapprove the nomination.  The state historic preservation officer will decide whether to forward the nomination to the Keeper of the National Register of Historic Places, National Park Service, U.S. Secretary of the Interior who shall make the decision whether to list the property on the National Register.  Any person or organization which supports or opposes the nomination of a property by the state historic preservation officer may petition the Keeper during the nomination process either to accept or reject a nomination.  Such petitions shall conform to the requirements of 36 CFR Chapter I, part 60.

     (c)     Appeals.  Any person, the board or the city may appeal to the Keeper the failure or refusal of the state historic preservation officer to nominate a property that the person, the board or the city considers to meet the National Register criteria, or the failure or refusal of the state historic preservation officer to nominate a property recommended by the State Historic Preservation Review Board.  Such appeals shall conform to the requirements of 36 CFR Chapter I, part 60.
