This story comes to us from Stephen Staudigl:

At its monthly meeting on Thursday, July 7 at 12:30 p.m. the National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC) will announce the winner of the President’s Park South Design Competition. The winning firm will then present its concepts for beautifying the security components and improving the visitor experience at President’s Park South, located between the White House Grounds and Constitution Avenue, NW. Following the announcement and presentation, the Commission will be asked to release amendments to the Federal Workplace and Transportation Elements of the Comprehensive Plan for the National Capital for a 60 day public review and comment period. Next on the agenda are two Fort Belvoir projects. In the first the Commission will review preliminary site and building plans for the National Museum of the United States Army. The proposed museum will be located on Fort Belvoir’s North Post. In the second NCPC will review preliminary site development plans for a new 3,500-foot perimeter fence on the base’s South Post adjacent to Route 1. NCPC will then review a submission by the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) to modify the Little Falls Stream Valley Park General Development Plan to allow for an easement so an access road and bridge over M-NCPPC parkland could be constructed. The final agenda and staff recommendations for each project are available on NCPC’s website.
