The National Park Service (NPS), in cooperation with the Federal Reserve Board (FRB), is seeking public comments on the potential design of the proposed repairs and upgrades to the North and East Garages, including security, safety, and accessibility enhancements. The purpose of the proposed project is to repair and provide critical maintenance, life-safety, building code, security, and accessibility upgrades to the below-grade North and East Garages and the fountain plaza at Robert Owen Park. The waterproofing and expansion joints at the roof of the below-grade garages have reached the end of their useful life and require replacement. Access to the top of the garage roofs necessitates the removal of landscape and hardscape features, including the soil, plantings, trees, paving, tennis courts, lights, and fountain. The project involves removing the existing waterproofing to evaluate the structural integrity of the roof and make necessary repairs, installation of a new waterproof system, and reinstalling, rebuilding, or replacing above-grade elements. A new entry kiosk serving the North Garage is proposed with upgraded security screening and accessible egress to the garage. The existing entry kiosk does not comply with current accessibility codes or the Board's security requirements.

In accordance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, the NPS is notifying you of the potential for effects and invite you to participate in the Section 106 consultation process to consider these effects. The meeting will provide an opportunity to review determinations of effects and to discuss potential mitigation measures for the adverse effects.
