Re: National Park Service Must Address All Impacts and Alternatives Before Starting Tidal Basin Seawall Project
Dear Director Hall and Chair Hawks Goodmann:
In light of the upcoming National Capital Planning Commission meeting on September 7, 2023, at which the National Park Service (“NPS”) will request final approval for the pending project: “Rehabilitation of the Tidal Basin and West Potomac Park Seawalls Project (“Project”), the FDR Memorial Legacy Committee (“FDR Committee”) submits this letter for your review, consideration and hopeful action.
As well documented, the FDR Committee has expressed its concern for the project. This letter seeks to enumerate once again those concerns in consideration of the potential violations of the National Environmental Protection Act (“NEPA”) and Administrative Procedure Act (“APA”).
