To Our Constituents - COVID Office Protocol
Please be advised the Kentucky Heritage Council has closed its offices to in-person services per executive order by Gov. Andy Beshear in response to COVID-19. For the forseeable future, all environmental review reports, tax credit applications and supporting materials, National Register correspondence, or other documents that require hard-copy submissions must be mailed or sent by delivery service to the Kentucky Heritage Council, 410 High Street, Frankfort, KY 40601, so that staff may follow up with you by phone.
Use this link to our About Us/KHC Staff page for quick access to staff email addresses and phone numbers. As most staff are working out of office during this time, we appreciate your patience and will return your email or call as soon as possible.
In 2021, a long-time goal and
one of our main initiatives toward full accessibility will move forward as we work in phases to digitize our Historic Resource Library.
Please be advised, for the first phase of this process, all of the Survey Forms and National Register files will be moved off site in January for scanning, so there will be no access to these files for the first several months of 2021.
Updates on the availability of these files for review will be provided periodically on our website. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
To accommodate this move, the KHC library will be closed from December 28th 2020 through January 8th 2021. Upon reopening, please note that Survey Reports, State Level Documentations, and the Historic Context Library will still be accessible via appointment for the public and consultants wishing to conduct background research and site checks. These files will be scheduled to be moved off site later this year for the second phase of scanning.
Beginning January 9th,
consultants can make appointments to visit our office in two time slots a day
on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays: 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to
4:30 p.m. We ask that you please refer to this memo for information and
follow all protocols outlined here and posted at our facility.
Consultants who require this service may also continue to utilize the
electronic records review portal at https://secure.kentucky.gov/formservices/Heritage/SiteID
