The Smithsonian Institution and the National Capital Planning Commission will host a combined public and agency scoping meeting on the proposed construction of the National Museum of African American History and Culture. The new museum will be built on the National Mall on a five-acre site at 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, N.W.
The meeting will solicit public comments for consideration in the Tier II Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), which will assess potential effects of constructing and operating the National Museum of African American History and Culture. Since the Tier I EIS was completed in summer 2008, an architectural team has been selected for the museum and pre-design studies, including a geotechnical report, have been completed. The Tier II EIS will study the effects of more refined concept alternatives that the architectural team will develop using the building parameters and design principles that came out of the Tier I EIS. The meeting also will cover the National Historic Preservation Act Section 106 process. Discussion topics will include land use and visitation, cultural resources, transportation, and natural resources. Representatives of the selected architectural team of Freelon Adjaye Bond/SmithGroup will be at the meeting.
