Subject: Proposed revised statement of policy on the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966


Thank you for making the proposed revised policy available for review
and comment.  We appreciate your continuing consideration of FDIC's
undertakings on historic properties, those listed in the National
Register of Historic Places as well as those eligible for listing.  The
definition of "Covered Applications" including new institutions, new
branches, and relocations of branches and main offices is reasonable. 

We applaud your clearly stated caution to Applicants that no action
should be taken on a historic property relevant to a Covered Application
involving demolitions, excavations, new construction, neglect causing
deterioration, or introduction of visual, atmospheric, or audible
elements that diminish significance without consulting with FDIC, ACHP,
and SHPO and "without adequate and legally enforceable restrictions or
conditions to ensure long-term preservation of the property's historic

We agree that SHPO consultation should not be required by FDIC for
messenger services; offices in supermarkets, existing shopping centers,
mobile or seasonal facilities; or properties that have been newly
constructed and in which the Applicant had no ownership interest prior
to or during construction.

We appreciate your firm and clearly stated agency position on historic
preservation related to Covered Applications.
