Nominations for listing on the National Register of Historic Places must be considered by the Historic Preservation Commission at a public hearing. After the public hearing the Commission must make a finding based on the eligibility criteria. Upon making a finding, the Commission must transmit the proposal and its recommendation to the Mayor for consideration. The City's findings are then transmitted to the State Historic Preservation Officer who then reviews the proposal and provides comments to the City. Following review by the State Nomination Review Committee, the nomination is forwarded to the National Park Service.
