The planning team has developed a set of five alternatives that describe different visions for how the National Mall could be managed, including calls for removing or shrinking the Capitol Reflecting Pool, creating a cafe and entertainment space in Constitution Gardens and improving the walkways, grass and landscaping around the Mall.
