C100 Preliminary Comments Lincoln Memorial Rehabilitation For NEPA And Section 106 Of The NPHA

Stephen A. Hansen

We understand and support the purpose of this renovation—to rehabilitate the Lincoln Memorial and its surrounding landscape for its centennial in 2022.  We further believe that making use of a portion of the existing undercroft space, if that is possible, will in the end achieve your dual goal of retaining the historic integrity of the memorial and ensuring the solemnity of its space as stated in the Naitonal Park Services' June 7th letter.
