North Carolina Highway Historical Marker Program

Notification ...

O nce a marker subject and an inscription have been approved by the Marker Advisory Committee and the Secretary of the Department of Cultural Resources, local governments and the individual or group responsible for the proposal are notified of the action and the site selected for the marker. Likewise, members of the legislative delegation are kept informed of committee actions. No marker will be erected without adequate notice and opportunity for a hearing.

If a local government objects to the placement of a particular marker, the matter is referred back to the Marker Advisory Committee. The inscription remains the prerogative of that committee. Final resolution of any conflicts shall rest with the North Carolina Historical Commission.
