One Project, Multiple Perspectives: An Example of Successful Section 106 Consultation in Northwest Indiana
When completing the Section 106 process, the parties involved often have differing opinions and goals regarding the consideration of cultural resources. Recent completion of a Phase III data recovery of a prehistoric site in northwest Indiana highlights the Section 106 process as a successful tool for communication between the federal agency, project applicant, SHPO, Native American tribes, and the CRM contractor regarding the consideration of significant cultural resources. While each of the aforementioned parties had varied opinions and goals regarding the project, through the Section 106 process, successful mitigation was completed such that impacts to the resource were mitigated, prehistoric human remains were protected, and the project proceeded with minimal delay. This presentation discusses aspects of the Phase III mitigation for the Singleton Quarry project from the perspectives of different parties involved in the Section 106 process, including the Federal Agency, the SHPO, Native American tribes, and the CRM contractor. This dialogue provides insight regarding the position and viewpoints of various entities often involved in projects pursuant to Section 106 of the NHPA.
