SEQR Guidelines

State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) Changes in Effect as of September 1, 2001

Regarding SHPO Correspondence in the SEQR Process

Please identify all building projects completely in letters sent to SHPO. When drafting the required letters for your projects to the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation, it is important that you completely identify each one by District Name, County, and SED Project Number. Incomplete information prevents SHPO from using the district name and SED number when corresponding to districts, architects, and SED. If SHPO can reference the appropriate SED number, we can route letters to the appropriate individual for handling, response, and storage in the appropriate project file.

Remember: We maintain files on over 2,000 projects per year on over 8,000 facilities!
