Title: A block survery is highly recommended in order to ensure all the Project is covered by a cultural resource inventory
Text: D. Cultural Resources Plan: "A block survey is highly recommended in order to ensure that all components of a federal CBNG Project area are covered by a cultural resource inventory. One of the most frequent factors for delaying approval of CBNG Project PODs or APDs is inadequate cultural coverage of the entire Project area, thus causing multiple surveys for a single project. Information to help prepare cultural resource plans can be found in Appendix E."
