Programmatic Agreements for Routine Military Training and Related Activities

BACKGROUND

The U.S. Army conducts routine military training and related activities, such as vegetation management, in multiple training areas on the islands of O‘ahu and Hawai‘i.

The Army must consider the effects these training activities may have on places that are important in American and Hawaiian history and culture. The Army must also find ways to prevent or reduce adverse effects to those places. These requirements are established in Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, and apply to all federal agencies.

CURRENT EFFORT

The U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii is currently developing programmatic agreements for military training and related activities in order to support Section 106 requirements.

These programmatic agreements will govern consultation, review and compliance as they apply to historic preservation and military training. The two planned programmatic agreements will address military training and related activities at the following installations:


Island of O‘ahu Programmatic Agreement

Island of Hawai‘i Programmatic Agreement

  •  Schofield Barracks Military Reservation
  •  Pōhakuloa Training Area
  •  Wheeler Army Airfield
  •  Kawaihae Military Reservation
  •  Kahuku Training Area
  •  Dillingham Military Reservation
  •  Oʻahu Roads and Trails System

The programmatic agreements are being developed through consultation with the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, the State Historic Preservation Officer, Native Hawaiian Organizations and other consulting parties, as well as considering input from the public-at-large.
