Notification of Intent. AGENCY: ACTION: On September 19, 2019 the Department of the Army notified the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) of the Army’s intent to request a Program Comment for Army Inter-War Era Historic Housing 1919–1940 in accordance with the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) Section 106, and 36 CFR 800.14(e). The Program Comment will demonstrate Army compliance with the NHPA regarding management of its inventory of Inter-War Era historic housing, associated structures, and landscape features. The Army plans to submit its formal request for Program Comment for Army Inter-War Era Historic Housing (1919–1940) to the ACHP in July 2020.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dr. David Guldenzopf, Department of the Army Federal Preservation Officer, (571) 256–7822, david.b.guldenzopf.civ@ mail.mil. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The intent of the Program Comment is to improve the quality of life, health, and safety of military families, increase historic property management efficiency and cost effectiveness, and preserve the historical and architectural character of this housing by meeting NHPA Section 106 requirements in a programmatic manner. There are approximately 2,700 Army Inter-War Era historic housing units (1919–1940) on 35 Army installations. The Army Quartermaster Corps led the design and construction of housing during the Inter-War era. The Quartermaster Corps adopted standardized plans for the nationally popular Colonial Revival design style for Army Inter-War era housing. With the use of standardized plans, the same Colonial Revival designs were repeated, one after the other, on Army installations. Army Inter-War Era housing, associated structures, and landscape features are subject to a large number of frequent and repetitive undertakings. The category of undertaking for the Program Comment for Army Inter-War Era Historic Housing (1919–1940) is management actions: Maintenance, repair, rehabilitation, renovation, abatement, mothballing, demolition, replacement, transfer, sale, and lease. These actions present a potential for adverse effects to historic properties. The Army’s proposed Program Comment treatment measures for Army Inter-War Era historic housing will ensure the effects of Army management actions are taken into account. The proposed treatment measures include: An Army Inter-War era housing historic context; identification of Army InterWar Era historic housing that may be of particular importance; public educational materials; and development of Design Guidelines for Army Inter-War Era Historic Housing 1919–1940. In order to address the health and safety risks to military families living in historic housing from potential hazards such as lead-based paint and address high costs associated with use of ‘‘inkind’’ historic materials, the Army will E:\FR\FM\28OCN1.SGM 28OCN1
