There are two types of consultations we provide:
1. Pre-Development Consultations
Design your projects with cultural sensitivity ahead of time to save time, money, and resources. This pre-planning and development consultation is a voluntary process to streamline building and anticipate potential cultural resource obstacles. An early consultation process can help inform project design in order to avoid disturbing potential cultural resources.
2. AB-52 & Section 106 Tribal Monitoring Consultations
California Assembly Bill 52 (AB-52) was passed under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) to strengthen the protection of tribal cultural resources. AB 52 requires public agencies to consult with tribes during the CEQA process. NCTC is qualified to conduct these tribal consultations in compliance with CEQA.
National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) Section 106 requires a consultation process to consider how development projects impact cultural and historical resources. NCTC is qualified to conduct tribal consultations in compliance with NHPA Section 106.
