Letter

Dear Mr. Anderson:

In its public meeting of 15 September conducted by videoconference, the Commission of Fine Arts approved, based on its prior review of the submission materials, the revised concept design for the new Ward 8 Senior Wellness Center, to be located on the campus of Kramer Middle School at 1700 Q Street, SE. In its approval action, the Commission expressed appreciation for the responsiveness to its previous comments, advising that as the design is advanced, the landscape should be developed to create an immersive and inclusive experience that fully supports the wellness mission of this public facility.

Please consult with the staff on the further development of the design and details such as the fencing, pedestrian pathways, and signage. As always, the staff is available to assist you with the next submission.

Sincerely,

/s/Thomas E. Luebke, FAIA
Secretary
