The National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) addresses the issue of preserving our national history.  Congress has declared that the historical and cultural foundations of the nation should be preserved as a living part of our community life and development and that the preservation of this irreplaceable heritage is in the public interest.  By preserving this foundation, a vital legacy of cultural, educational, aesthetic, inspirational, economic, and energy benefits will be maintained and enriched for future generations of Americans.  All Federal agencies, including the Academy, are required to establish a program to locate, inventory, and nominate all properties under the agency's control that qualify for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places.  The effects of a new undertaking on property in the National Register must be considered before beginning an undertaking.  The State of Colorado Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) must be consulted during identification, location, and evaluation of historic properties and in assessing the effect of an undertaking on historic property.  The SHPO also needs to be notified where there is no adverse effect, or when there are no historic properties in the area of potential effect
