From the Smithsonian Institution:

“The Smithsonian Institution and the National Capital Planning Commission seek public comment and participation in an online public meeting and a public site tour as part of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) scoping process for the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden building and plaza revitalization project.

The purpose of the public scoping period, online meeting, and site tour is to gather public input to inform the scope of issues to address in an Environmental Assessment (EA). The online meeting will include a presentation about the project, discussion of purpose and need, proposed project alternatives under consideration, and issues to be analyzed in the EA.

Registration is required for attendance.

** Please note that due to the project’s size, and to provide opportunities for comments and discussion, the scoping meeting will be held in two parts over Zoom. After completing registration, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinars. A single registration covers both meetings.**

Join us Tuesday, May 21 from 9:00-11:00 am and Wednesday, May 22 from 2:00-4:00 pm for a two-part online public scoping meeting.
