C100 Comments WWI Memorial Pershing Park

Stephen A. Hansen

The two Concepts presented at the Consulting Parties Meeting on February 9 both improve over the concepts presented last September and October. However, we still have some concerns, questions and suggestions as outlined below. It is clear that significant design work, analysis and expense has gone into preparing the two revised designs. However, we want to note that it is still somewhat difficult, even standing in Pershing Park with the designs in hand, to be completely sure of what is being proposed. We hope that the National Park Service will request more clarity in the next stage of plan refinement. That would certainly improve the design review process.
