Review Type
Revised draft Master Plan


Dear Dr. Elias:

In the meeting of 27 July, the Commission reviewed and approved the revised draft master plan for the U.S. National Arboretum for revisions to include the proposed classical Chinese garden, accessibility-related modifications to the Asian Collection path system, and the linkage of the Arboretum to the Anacostia Riverfront Walk.

We look forward to the review of the final master plan and of the individual projects as they are developed, beginning with a concept review at an early stage of the design phase. As always, the staff is available to assist you.
