The Commission has drafted revisions to the agency's environmental and historic policies and procedures. This revised document addresses necessary changes to the Commission's existing requirements, which describe how the National Capital Planning Commission, beginning at the earliest possible point, considers the environmental and historic aspects of proposed actions that it reviews and acts upon, including commemorative works. The revised procedures, when adopted in their final form, would supersede current provisions regarding environmental documentation required by the Commission. The revisions also address National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), section 106 compliance, pertaining to Commission review and action. Currently, the Commission anticipates final adoption of the proposed revised Environmental and Historic Preservation Policies and Procedures in December 2000.
