SECTION 106 PUBLIC NOTICE
DEVELOPMENT OF A SINGLE PROGRAMMATIC AGREEMENT (PA) REGARDING PUBLIC-PRIVATE VENTURE (PPV) HOUSING ABOARD MCBH FOR THE PURPOSE OF CONSOLIDATING MULTIPLE EXISTING AGREEMENTS
(1) PROGRAMMATIC AGREEMENT AMONG THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY, THE HAWAII STATE HISTORIC PRESERVATION OFFICER, AND THE ADVISORY COUNCIL ON HISTORIC PRESERVATION FOR THE HAWAII PUBLIC-PRIVATE VENTURE (PPV) PHASE II (PPV PHASE II PA), and
(2) PROGRAMMATIC AGREEMENT AMONG THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY, THE HAWAII STATE HISTORIC PRESERVATION OFFICER, AND THE ADVISORY COUNCIL ON HISTORIC PRESERVATION FOR THE HAWAII PUBLIC-PRIVATE VENTURE (PPV) PHASE IV, AS AMENDED (PPV PHASE IV PA).
In 2006 and 2007, the Department of the Navy (Navy), through the Commanding Officer, Marine Corps Base Hawaii (MCBH), the Hawaii State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO), and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) entered into the above subject programmatic agreements (PA) in accordance with Sections 106 and 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) to establish processes whereby the privatization of MCBH family housing in Hawaii would take into account the effects of PPV development on historic properties within certain housing neighborhoods of the lease areas, known as Phases II and IV respectively. In 2010, the PPV Phase IV PA was amended to add the Ulupau neighborhood. In 2015, additional section 106 consultation was carried out regarding the development of the Hana Like neighborhood and a portion of the Waikulu neighborhood, which were not included in the previous section 106 consultations for PPV Phases II and IV.
MCBH is proposing to consolidate all PPV housing at MCBH under one programmatic agreement, rather than multiple agreement documents, to accomplish the following: rectify inconsistences between the two PAs; provide for a single and consistent approach to Section 106 compliance across all neighborhoods located within MCBH; eliminate language referencing completed or obsolete stipulations; and update whereas statements, stipulations, and exhibits, as necessary.
In accordance with the Section 106 Implementing Regulations at 36 CFR 800.14, MCBH seeks comments from all interested persons on resolving potential adverse effects on historic properties from the proposed undertaking to consolidate multiple PPV PAs into one PPV PA at MCBH. Specific information about this undertaking will be made available to all interested persons on request. Questions, comments, and correspondence should be directed to the MCBH Cultural Resources Managers at email@example.com no later than 15 February 2022.
