Banneker Park Assessment of Effects


The National Park Service (NPS), in cooperation with the National Capital Planning
Commission (NCPC), and in collaboration with the District of Columbia (the District) and
Hoffman-Madison Waterfront, is proposing to construct a temporary connection at Benjamin
Banneker Park (Banneker Park) that includes a stairway and Architecture Barriers Act
Accessibility Standard (ABAAS)-compliant ramp to provide universal accessibility between
Tenth Street, SW, and Maine Avenue, SW, along the southwest waterfront.

This Assessment of Effects Report (AOE) analyzes the three developed alternatives and provides
the following documentation required by 36 CFR 800.11(e):
 Description of the Undertaking;
 Description of the project and each alternative;
 Description of the APE and identification of historic properties;
 Assessment of effects on historic properties from each alternative; and
 Copies and summaries of views provided by consulting parties and the public.
Based on the analysis presented in this report, and in consultation with DC SHPO, CFA, and
other consulting parties, NPS and NCPC have determined that the project will have no adverse
effect on historic properties, conditional to the further design review of landscape details to
include: stormwater management, material selection, location of trees, lighting design, and
design of wayfinding signs.
