The Commemorative Works Committee is a citywide body established by The Commemorative Works Amendment Act of 2000 that meets monthly to review commemorative work applications and advise the Mayor and District Council who are required to take a final action on each proposal. All reviews and comments on applications are considered by the Committee prior to advising the Mayor and District Council. The 9-member Committee is staffed by the Office of Planning, chaired by the Director of the Office of Planning, and has members representing the Department of Parks and Recreation, Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Historic Preservation Review Board, and citizens appointed by the Mayor and Chair of District Council.
