Previous Review


Dear Mr. Jackson:

During its meeting of 25 January 2005, the Commission reviewed and approved the revised concept design for the replacement of the Tenley-Friendship Branch Library located at 4450 Wisconsin Avenue, NW Although the Commission feels this design is the least successful of the libraries recently presented, the revisions respond to many of the member’s previous comments.

The final design should be submitted for review when ready . The Commission looks forward to the review of other projects for the District of Columbia Public Libraries. The staff is always available to assist you.


/s/Frederick J. Lindstrom
Acting Secretary

Mr. Richard L. Jackson
