NCPC to Review Eisenhower Memorial Concept Designs, Georgetown Waterfront Park

This story comes to us from Stephen Staudigl:

At its monthly meeting on Thursday, February 3 at 12:30 p.m., the National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC) will provide comments on three concept designs for the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial. Submitted by the National Park Service, the memorial honoring America’s 34th president will be located on a four-acre site south of Independence Avenue, SW across from the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum.

The Commission also will review final site development plans for Phase III of the Georgetown Waterfront Park. At its January meeting the Commission deferred consideration of the National Park Service’s plans to allow time for the Park Service to research the feasibility and appropriateness of replacing Sycamore trees already planted in the park with another size and/or species of tree. There will be no staff presentation for this project.
