American Recovery and Reinvestment Act 2009 Section 110 Compliance Report for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District, NHPA, Cultural Resources Investigations, Technical Report No. 35, Geospatial Inventory of Previous Cultural Resource Management Survey Areas Pertaining to the New Orleans District and the State of Louisiana
Geospatial Inventory of Previous Cultural Resource Management Survey Areas Pertaining to the New Orleans District and the State of Louisiana.
In 2009, JMA (John Milner Associates Inc.) was retained by the U.S. Department of the Army, St. Louis
District, Corps of Engineers (Corps) to conduct cultural resources compliance investigations for Corps districts throughout the northeastern United States. These investigations were authorized by Section 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 (NHPA), as amended, which requires all federal agencies to establish a historic preservation program for properties under their jurisdiction and to integrate historic preservation considerations into agency plans and activities. Specifically, it calls for agencies to inventory fee simple lands for historic properties, to evaluate those properties for local, state, and/or national significance, and to nominate significant properties to the National Register of Historic Places. Section 110 further specifies that steps be taken to protect historic properties from disturbance or destruction due to agency activities. The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers Section 110 investigations are American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funded, and the stated goals of the act are, in part, to preserve and promote employment. This Task Order employed cultural resources management specialists between 11 May 2010 and 30 June 2011. Twenty-one individuals were employed or retained their employment in the course of this investigation. The employee positions included: Project Managers, GIS Specialists, GIS Technicians, and Archeologists. The work was implemented under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 and governed by and undertaken in accordance with provisions of Contract No. W912P9-09-D-0536. Section 110 compliance investigations were solicited from each of the Corps districts in an area bounded roughly by Maine, Virginia, Missouri, and Minnesota, scopes of work were drawn up and negotiated, and the work was undertaken by a consortium of cultural resource firms under the lead of JMA. Initially, Section 110 investigations were assigned to JMA in 14 Corps districts, including Baltimore, Buffalo, Chicago, Detroit, Huntington, Louisville, New England, New York, Norfolk, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Rock Island, St. Paul, and St. Louis. Subsequently, three additional districts (Nashville, Jacksonville, and New Orleans) were assigned to JMA. In all cases, the investigations were closely coordinated with the applicable district's cultural resource specialist. This document reports on the methods, procedures, and results of work undertaken for the New Orleans District. The New Orleans District encompasses 44 Louisiana parishes in part and in whole.
