In 1997, the NPS signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the District of Columbia State Historic Preservation Officer (DC SHPO) that contained a provision that a boathouse proposed by the University would not have a footprint greater than 15,000 square feet. When Georgetown University subsequently proposed a larger boathouse, an amendment to the MOA was requested but was never implemented. Additional sites are now being considered the NPS is reopening of the Section 106 consultation process under the National Historic Preservation Act.


The Section 106 process is being undertaken concurrent with the environmental review process mandated by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). NPS hosted an initial public scoping meeting in December 2007 and conducted focus group meetings in May 2008. This June 6th meeting will be the first in a series of Section 106 meetings on the project.
