Commemorative Works Committee Meetings, Dates, and Filing Deadlines

To review presentations and minutes from past Commemorative Works Committee meetings, check out the Board of Ethics and Government Accountability’s OPEN-DC website. 

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.

For additional information about the Commemorative Works Committee meetings, please contact [email protected].

The Commemorative Works Committee meets the third Friday of every other month. Sponsors must submit a complete application to the Office of Planning three weeks before the Commemorative Works Committee meeting to be considered at that month’s meeting. Sponsors are strongly encouraged to coordinate with Office of Planning staff prior to submitting an application to make sure it is complete when submitted.
