The Section 106 process was developed to avoid unforeseen adverse effects on historic properties. Often the Section 106 process leads to the documentation of sites this can sometimes involve discoveries about said sites. In other cases, the parties involved find ways to update historic properties for current needs. While a Memorandum of Agreement is generally the outcome of Section 106, the development of a Programmatic Agreement can speed up Section 106 compliance. The time involved in the section 106 process varies widely. Multiple parties are involved in this process. Also, Public opinion can significantly impact the outcomes of this process.
