Dear Mr. Gover:

The staff of the Commission of Fine Arts has reviewed the final designs of the guardrail and the paving pattern for the National Native American Veterans Memorial, to be constructed on the grounds of the National Museum of the American Indian at Maryland Avenue and 3rd Street, SW. The staff has no objections to these designs, which are responsive to the previous recommendations of the Commission.

With the authority delegated by the Commission at its meeting of 17 October 2019, the staff approves these supplements to the final design for the project, as documented in the drawings and materials received and dated 24 January 2020. If there are any additional changes, please contact us to determine if additional review will be required. As always, the staff is available to assist you with future submissions.
