The National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC) votes 6-5 in favor of approving the east end of Constitution Gardens as the site for the Memorial, against our recommendation and against the recommendation of their staff. At issue for the five members voting against the motion is an interest to give the Foundation an opportunity to prepare more analysis. However, it is important to note that not all members who spoke voiced their preference for the Constitution Gardens site.
