Design and construct the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial

National Mall & Memorial Parks » Design and construct the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial » Document List

The National Park Service (NPS) and the Eisenhower Memorial Commission (the Commission) are working to establish a national memorial to Dwight D. Eisenhower on a site located at Maryland and Independence Avenues, and 4th and 6th Streets in southwest Washington, DC in proximity to the National Mall and US Capitol Building. The Commission, created in October 1999 by Public Law 106-79, is charged with memorializing Dwight D. Eisenhower's military achievements, Presidential accomplishments, and lifetime of public service. The site is located on federal lands owned by the NPS, the District of Columbia, and the General Services Administration (GSA). The National Capital Planning Commission encouraged redevelopment of the site as a major memorial as part of its December 2001 Museums and Memorials Master Plan. NPS is the lead federal agency for this project. The GSA is a cooperating agency.

In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, the NPS and the Commission prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) in 2011 and a Finding of No Significant Impact in 2012. In addition, consistent with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, the project's potential effect on historic resources were evaluated and resulted in a Memorandum of Agreement, executed in 2012.

The MOA requires NPS to post annual updates to the Signatories, Invited Signatory(ies), the Consulting Parties, and the public on the Project and the actions taken to implement the terms of this Agreement.
