Maryland Historical Trust Launches Online Tool

The Maryland Historical Trust (MHT) is pleased to launch an online tool for searching its Project Review and Compliance Log databaseAs Maryland’s State Historic Preservation Office, MHT reviews and comments on projects receiving funds, permits, and licenses from federal and/or state agencies for their effects on historic and archeological resources. Reviewing over 6,000 submittals each year for a wide range of projects throughout Maryland, MHT tracks individual submittal requests and response actions in the Log database. 

Through this readily available online tool, customers may now conveniently access current information on their state and federal projects. Agencies, applicants, consultants and interested others may query the Log to find out the status of a submittal, generate a list of projects meeting specified criteria, or view a PDF copy of MHT’s response, if available. The online tool provides background information about the Log fields and useful search tips.
