Purpose of Proposed Legislation and Background Information
The purpose of this legislation is to accept and appropriate a $15,713 grant from the State Historic Preservation Office to support the documentation of unrepresented historic resources within Portland’s Certified Local Government Program.
The City of Portland has been recognized as a Certified Local Government by the National Park Service since 1997. The City’s Certified Local Government status reflects the ongoing historic preservation compliance, outreach, and land use functions conducted by the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS), Bureau of Development Services (BDS), and Historic Landmarks Commission. Certified Local Governments are eligible to receive grant funding from the State Historic Preservation Office every two years. Such funding was received in 2020, 2018, and 2016.
This ordinance will allow BPS to accept a grant from the State Historic Preservation Office to support the documentation and protection of underrepresented historic resources. The grant will support professional contract services.
Financial and Budgetary Impacts
The State Historic Preservation Office has awarded a $15,713 grant to the City for this project, which will be incorporated into the BPS FY 2021-22 budget for $15,713 under grant number PN000108.
This legislation will not create new City staff positions and will use existing General Fund funded positions for staff time associated with the project. There is a match requirement of $15,000 for this grant, which will be in the form of salary, benefits, and payroll taxes from the existing positions in the BPS Historic Resources Program.
Community Impacts and Community Involvement
This grant will support continuation of BPS Historic Resources Program’s work in supporting the identification and designation of underrepresented historic resources.
100% Renewable Goal
This grant will support documentation of historic resources; therefore, this goal is not applicable.
