Design Review Just Part Of The Process

The Washington Post has an item out today addressing the progress being made in discussions over the statue of Dr. King that's to be completed for the memorial. The piece also points out that these types of discussions are not unusual in the erection of DC monuments.

Most memorials and monuments proposed for Washington undergo rigorous review and public debate, which can go on for years and involve significant design changes. The Korean War Veterans Memorial, for example, had more than a dozen statues subtracted from its design.
