Advisory Council on Historic Preservation Chairman Aimee Jorjani today toured the site of what will be the National World War I Memorial in Washington, D.C. Located in Pershing Park one block from the White House, the memorial is expected to open to the public in April 2021. Of the four major wars of the 20th century, World War I is the last to have a national memorial in the nation’s capital.

Pershing Park, a memorial to General John J. Pershing, commander of American forces in World War I, was redesignated as the site of the National World War I Memorial through legislation signed by President Barack Obama, as part of the U.S. World War I Centennial Commission activities.

ACHP members met virtually December 10 for their fall business meeting. Chairman Aimee Jorjani welcomed new ACHP expert and general public members to their first meeting including Vice Chairman Rick Gonzales, Luke Nichter, Kristopher King, John Finley, and John Frey. Members discussed several topics focusing on outleasing of federal historic properties where there was discussion on strategies for helping federal agencies reduce their footprint while making sure preservation remains in the forefront. They also discussed the upcoming 2021 report to the President which summarizes how federal agencies are using their historic properties. Additionally, there was discussion on how the ACHP guides agencies on using program alternatives for working through the Section 106 process.
