The National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) requires federal agencies to consider the effects that a proposed action may have on historic resources and to consult on means to avoid, minimize, or mitigate effects determined to be adverse. For the proposed action, GSA's EIS will include a summary of the proposed action's potential impact to cultural resources. In conjunction with GSA's NEPA documentation, GSA will fulfill its Section 106 responsibilities by conducting consultation as necessary with consulting parties to evaluate the potential for effects to historic resources on or near the sites under consideration for the new FBI Headquarters.
GSA has determined, and the DC State Historic Preservation Office has concurred, that the J. Edgar Hoover Building is not eligible under Criteria Consideration G for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. Section 106 consultation will evaluate the potential for effects to adjacent and nearby National Register-listed properties, including the Pennsylvania Avenue National Historic Site.
