Hawaiʻi State Revised Statutes 6E
What is HRS 6E? Hawaii Revised Statutes 6E is the State of Hawaii’s historic preservation law. The law was passed by the legislature in 1976 with the intent of promoting the use and conservation of historic properties for the education, inspiration, pleasure and enrichment of its citizens. The review and compliance portion of the law requires that permits on publicly and some privately owned properties over 50 years of age be reviewed by the State Historic Preservation Division. The purpose of this review is to both identify historic resources and to avoid or mitigate potential negative affects to them.
