SECTION 63
Protection and management of state historic and cultural properties
Public Buildings (PBB) CHAPTER 44, ARTICLE 4-B
§ 63. Protection and management of state historic and cultural
properties. The commissioner of the office of general services or the
chief executive officer of any state agency shall:

1. Consult with the commissioner of parks and recreation as early in
the planning process as may be practicable when planning to demolish,
alter or transfer any property under their jurisdiction listed on the
state or national register or that has been determined by the
commissioner of parks and recreation to be eligible for the state
register, for the purpose of exploring alternatives to demolition,
alteration or transfer. The commissioner of parks and recreation shall
inform the state board of such proposed actions.

2. Initiate measures and procedures to provide for the maintenance,
through preservation, rehabilitation or restoration of properties under
their jurisdiction that are listed on the state or national register or
are determined by the commissioner of parks and recreation to be
eligible for listing on the state register.

3. Initiate measures to assure that where as a result of state
action, a property listed in the state register of historic places is to
be substantially altered or demolished, timely steps be taken to make or
have made records, including measured drawings, photographs and maps of
the property according to the standards of the Historic American
Building Survey, and that a copy of such records then be deposited in
the state archives and with the Library of Congress for future reference
and use.

4. To the fullest extent practicable, secure by preservation,
restriction, historic or cultural properties sold or transferred by the
state, which properties are listed on the state or national register or
determined by the commissioner of parks and recreation to be eligible
for listing on the state register.

5. Cooperate with purchasers and transferees of state owned
properties listed on the state or national register or determined by the
commissioner of parks and recreation to be eligible for listing on the
state register in the development of viable plans to use such property
in a manner compatible with preservation objectives.
