Recognizing the balance between progress and our environment...
To satisfy federal and state laws, particularly the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), Cypress Cultural Consultants (CCC) uses structural history to identify historic and cultural resources within a project area. Through the systematic study of the built environment, our historians can evaluate the significance of individual properties, as well as historic districts, and then evaluate whether any impacts on these properties are likely from implementation of a proposed government-funded project. This is done through a systematic survey of the built environment within a proposed project’s Area of Potential Effect (APE). Through research, and visual evaluation CCC can determine eligibility for the National Register of Historic Places. CCC can also advise on how to minimize harm to eligible historic properties through creative solutions or minor modifications to the project design.
The firm has extensive experience in structural history services outside of the NEPA documentation process, such as:
