McMillan Sand Filtration site development plan followers — see this message from ANC 5C03 Commissioner Hugh Youngblood:
Howard University joins the pack as the latest organization to go on the official record with strong opposition to the plan proposed by the Vision McMillan Partners (and backed by Mayor Gray) to destroy Bloomingdale’s historic Olmsted park located at McMillan Sand Filtration Site.
Please see the attached letter to the DC Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) authored by Dr. Hassan Minor, Senior Vice President of Howard University Strategic Planning and External Affairs, calling for creative adaptive reuse of the McMillan Park site to create a world-class destination for education, recreation, and cultural heritage.
Many thanks to Commissioner Tony Norman and the McMillan Park Committee for their decades of service in fighting back against the system on behalf of the community on the McMillan Park project.
If you have yet to do so, please submit your thoughts on the current McMillan proposal in writing to the HPRB; the written record remains open for a few more days.
