Dear Mr. Anderson:

In its public meeting of 15 April conducted by videoconference, the Commission of Fine Arts approved, based on its prior review of the submission materials, the proposed final design for the renovation of and additions to Smothers Elementary School, located at 44th and Brooks Streets, NE. In its action, the Commission requested that the historic main entrance door to the school be retained as an operable entrance, with its historic details and landscape setting restored as part of this project.

Please coordinate with the staff for the submission of additional details for the restoration of the historic main entrance to complete the review. As always, the staff is available to assist you with future submissions.
