The article features the admissions criteria for 50 year old buildings and districts to be considered for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. The enormous amount of construction in the 1950s and 1960s has preservation commissions searching for money and staff for documentation. Some preservationists view the recent past as a threatened era that merits special emphasis. Some planners say that they are uneasy about the implications of preserving districts that are based on unsustainable design principles. The point was to ensure that in considering nominations, both state and local governments and federal evaluators were not merely responding to current popular trends and fads.
