Public Notice of Resubmission of the Proposed Eastmoreland National Register Historic District The Oregon State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) intends to resubmit the National Register nomination for the proposed Eastmoreland National Register Historic District to the federal National Park Service (NPS) with a request to list it in the National Register of Historic Places in June 2022. NPS will consider the nomination for up to 45 calendar days before making a final decision. The SHPO is currently accepting public comments. The proposed Eastmoreland Historic District encompasses approximately 475 acres and is generally bounded by SE Woodstock Blvd on the north; SE Cesar E Chavez Blvd and SE 36th Ave on the east; Berkeley Park and SE Crystal Springs Blvd on south; and SE 27th and 28th Ave on the west. Properties listed in the National Register are: — Recognized as significant to the nation, state, or community; — Considered in the planning of federal or federally assisted projects; — Eligible for federal and state tax benefits; — Qualify for historic preservation grants when funds are available; and — Eligible for leniency in meeting certain building code requirements. Any owner of private property located within the boundaries of the proposed district may object to the listing by submitting a signed statement of objection that includes a statement that they are an owner of property within the district, that they object to the listing, and that the information contained in the statement is true, under penalty of perjury. Property owners may choose to provide a signed, notarized statement with the same information instead. Original statements of objection must be mailed to Oregon State Historic Preservation Office, Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, Oregon State Historic Preservation Office, EASTMORELAND HISTORIC DISTRICT, 725 Summer Street N.E., Suite C, Salem, OR 97301. Owners who previously submitted a statement of objection do not need to resubmit their form unless contacted by the SHPO. The district will not be listed in the National Register if the majority of property owners object. More information about the nomination process and how this may affect property owners, a copy of the nomination, and forms for property owners to object to the nomination are available at https://bit.ly/eastmorelandhd. LOCAL GOVERNMENT PROTECTION OF HISTORIC AND PREHISTORIC PROPERTIES State law in Oregon requires local governments to offer a minimum level of protection to properties listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Local governments also have the authority to create local historic districts and landmarks. City of Portland Zoning Code Section 33.445.220 applies certain land use regulations to National Register Districts. Contact Brandon Spencer-Hartle, City Planner, Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, (503) 823-4641 or email@example.com, for information on local historic preservation programs.
