Environmental Review Procedures


Several federal and state laws direct government agencies to take into consideration the effects of their actions on historic resources. Under these laws, consultation with SHPO is required.The goal of the consultation is to find ways to avoid harm to historic properties. If impacts cannot be avoided then the SHPO works to minimize or mitigate the adverse effects.

The environmental review process is initiated by submitting the Project Notification From with all of the requested attachments.  At this time, only paper copies of  project submittals are accepted.  We do not accept project information in  a digital format or via email.  Please address all submittals to:


State Historic Preservation Office

Attn:  Environmental Review

450 Columbus Boulevard, Suite 5

Hartford, CT 06103

The quality of submitted materials will impact the time needed to complete a review.
