Arlington National Cemetery: Confederate Memorial Removal Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)

As part of the ongoing effort related to the removal of the Confederate Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery, Army National Military Cemeteries is providing the public with an opportunity to submit comments on the draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), which is available for review on the ANC Confederate Memorial Removal website.

A notice of availability for the Draft EIS was published in the Federal Register on Oct. 6, 2023, officially opening the 45-day public comment period.

Members of the public are invited to use the form below to submit comments related to the draft EIS. Only comments received between October 6, 2023, and 11:59 p.m. (EST) on November 20, 2023, will be considered in preparing the Final EIS. Following the public comment period, ANMC will analyze comments received, publish a final EIS, and make a final determination about the preferred alternative for removal and disposition of the Confederate Memorial.

Please visit the project website for more information about the project, the processes that will be followed, and other ways the public can be involved. The draft EIS can also be accessed from the website. 

The scoping comment period will begin on October 6, 2023. 

Public comments will be accepted on this web site on that date.
