The Delaware State Review Board for Historic Preservation serves as an advisory body to the State Historic Preservation Officer, the State official who has been appointed by the governor to oversee and implement the State’s preservation policies in accordance with federal standards. State review boards were created to function primarily as professional bodies that can objectively evaluate the historic significance of properties and provide professional advice on historic preservation matters. In order to accomplish this, a majority of the members must meet minimum professional requirements established in regulation by the National Park Service and represent certain professional disciplines established by the National Historic Preservation Act and amplified in regulation by the National Park Service.
