The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF), which is an official consulting party to the federal level reviews concerning the siting of the Obama Presidential Center, issued the following statement concerning the ruling against the suit filed by Protect Our Parks: “Today’s ruling, while disappointing, is by no means the final word,” said Charles A. Birnbaum, president & CEO of The Cultural Landscape Foundation. “Though the carefully orchestrated local approvals process has been enabled by pliant municipal officials, there are still federal-level reviews underway for this nationally significant work of landscape architecture that is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.”
