New flagpoles and landscape improvements for DHS Headquarters Building
Review Type


Dear Ms. Wright:

In its public meeting of 18 June conducted by videoconference, the Commission of Fine Arts approved, based on its prior review of the submission materials, the proposed final design for the installation of three flagpoles and the recreation of the historic landscape within the circular drive at the north front of the historic Center Building on the St. Elizabeths West Campus. The Commission’s action is consistent with the District of Columbia Historic Preservation Office’s finding of no adverse effect on the historic building and grounds.

As always, the staff is available to assist you with future submissions.


/s/Thomas E. Luebke, FAIA
