Section 106 Review
The OHP offers a Section 106 Submission Checklist that identifies the information that should be submitted to us for review of undertakings pursuant to Section 106. Refer to our Section 106 webpage for detailed information regarding the Section 106 review process. Questions should be directed to our Section 106 and Compliance staff (see Staff Contacts above).
The two-page version of the checklist provides a succinct listing of all required information, with minimal explanation.
The annotated version of the checklist is longer and provides detailed explanations of required information.
These checklists are intended as tools for entities consulting with our office – they should not be submitted with your request for consultation.
