Information related to Historic Resources will be provided at the Public Hearing. This will provide information to residents, local public officials, and interested persons and organizations relative to the process and schedule for identifying and evaluating historic resources, determining significant historic properties, and evaluating potential impacts to significant historic properties. Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 requires federal agencies to consider the effects of projects they carry out, approve, or fund on historic properties.
There are four historic properties identified within the project’s area of potential effect (APE) that are eligible for the listing in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). These historic properties include: The Brooksville Overpass over the CSX Railroad, the Downtown Brooksville Historic District and its eight contributing resources, the residence at 140 Main Street, and the Brooksville Lumber. The last two are also contributing resources to the historic district.
A Section 106 Case Study Report was prepared to document potential effects to these resources. The proposed project is anticipated to result in No Adverse Effect to these historic properties.The State Historic Preservation Officer concurred with these findings on June 19, 2019.
