Proposed Sites for Future Commemorative Works

Previous | Home | Next

In November 2003, the U.S. Congress passed an amendment to the Commemorative Works Act authorizing a Reserve or no-build zone on the National Mall, as proposed in NCPC's 2001 Memorials and Museums Master Plan. The legislation established a Reserve at the cross axis of the Mall and prohibited new commemorative works from being located in this area.
