FCC Launches New Site on Environmental and Historic Preservation

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on October 3, 2003

From the FCC’s new Environmental and Historic Preservation website:

  • The FCC has specific responsibilities pursuant to the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA), the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), and other related statutes to evaluate the impact of its actions on the quality of the human environment. NEPA requires agencies of the Federal Government to evaluate the effects of their major federal actions on the quality of the human environment. The Commission has found that these requirements apply to a wide range of communications facilities, including broadcast and cellular antenna structures, fiber optic lines, undersea cables, and other communications facilities. NHPA requires agencies of the Federal Government to take into account the effect of their federal undertakings on any district, site, building, structure, or object that is included in or eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places.”
