Dear Gen. Matz:

In its public meeting of 21 May conducted by videoconference, the Commission of Fine Arts approved, based on its prior review of the submission materials, the concept design for a perimeter security barrier at the North Africa American Cemetery and Memorial in Tunis, Tunisia. The Commission delegated review of the final design to the staff, anticipating further coordination regarding the sloping terrain, adjacent roadways, and potential archeological sites along the alignment of the new barrier at the cemetery’s southern edge, parallel to the Route de Roosevelt.

Please coordinate with the staff for the delegated review of the final design.
