The additional acreage authorized by this section is in recognition of the historical significance of the Memorial site to the westward expansion of the United States and the historical linkage of this site on the Mississippi in both Missouri and Illinois to such expansion, the international recognition of the Gateway Arch, designed by Eero Saarinen, as one of the world's great sculptural and architectural achievements, and the increasing use of the Memorial site by millions of people from all over the United States and the world. "(b) Within the area designated in accordance with this section, the Secretary of the Interior may acquire lands and interests in lands by donation, purchase with donated or appropriated funds, or exchange, except that lands owned by the State of Illinois or any political subdivision thereof may be acquired only by donation. "SEC. 5. Where appropriate in the discretion of the Secretary of the Interior, he may transfer by lease or otherwise, to any appropriate person or governmental entity, land owned by the United States (or any interest therein) which has been acquired by the Secretary under section 4. Any such transfer shall be consistent with the management plan for the area and with the requirements of section 5 of the Act of July 15, 1968 (82 Stat. 356; 16 U.S.C. 4601-22) and shall be subject to such conditions and restrictions as the Secretary deems necessary to carry out the purposes of this Act, including terms and conditions which provide for— "(1) the continuation of existing uses of the land which are compatible with the Memorial, "(2) the protection of the important historical resources of the leased area, and "(3) the retention by the Secretary of such access and development rights as the Secretary deems necessary to provide for appropriate visitor use and resource management. In transferring any lands or interest in lands under this section, the Secretary shall take into account the views of the Commission established under section 8. "SEC. 6. Lands and interests in lands acquired pursuant to section 4 shall, upon acquisition, be a part of the Memorial. The Secretary of the Interior shall administer the Memorial in accordance with this Act and the provisions of law generally applicable to units of the national park system, including the Act entitled 'An Act to establish a National Park Service, and for other purposes', approved August 25, 1916 (39 Stat. 535; 16 U.S.C. 1-4) and the Act of August 21, 1935 (49 Stat. 666; 16 U.S.C. 461-467). In the development, management, and operation of that portion of the Memorial which is added to the Memorial under section 4, the Secretary shall, to the maximum extent feasible, utilize the assistance of State and local government agencies and the private sector. For such purposes, the Secretary may, consistent with the management plan for the area, enter into cooperative agreements with the State, with any political subdivision of the State, or with any person. Any such cooperative agreement shall, at a minimum, establish procedures for providing notice to the Secretary of any action proposed by the State, such political subdivision, or such person, which may affect the area.
