Notice of Scoping Meeting/Section 106 Consultation Meeting
Date Start Time End Time Time Zone Location

1100 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, District of Columbia

Please join park staff and planners to learn about and discuss planning to evaluate the proposed development of the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial.

The EA will address the project background (including a summary of the 2006 planning process that determined the site for the memorial site), the purpose and need for the memorial, the no action alternative and three build alternatives, a determination of environmental issues and potential impacts of a memorial based the specific memorial design, and public involvement and agency coordination.
The proposed action would establish the memorial on the project site and could result in the closure of the segment of Maryland Avenue to vehicular traffic, the removal of limited structures on the site, and the construction and operation of a memorial of undetermined design to commemorate Dwight D. Eisenhower. Conceptual designs of the memorial are being developed. One build alternative will explore a memorial concept for the site that preserves the Maryland Avenue cartway. The alternative designs will address the constraints of the site, including adjacent building heights, setbacks from the perimeter streets and the US Department of Education Building, and the preservation of the Maryland Avenue view corridor aligned with the nearby US Capitol Building.

If you require additional information or special assistance to attend and participate in this meeting, please contact Glenn DeMarr at the NPS at (202) 619-7027.
