In the real world: Montgomery BRT, Flower Theater, Lion Ride, Northeast rail, McMillan sand, and activism training

Here is the paragraph about McMillan:
Learn about McMillan: One of DC`s biggest development proposals, and controversies, involves the McMillan San Filtration Site by North Capitol and Michigan Avenue. The architect, developer, and ANC Commissioner and the Coalition for Smarter Growth will show you the site and the plans on Saturday, August 25, from 10 am to noon. Meet at First and Channing, NW, accessible by the H3/H4 and 80 buses. RSVP here .
So it looks like the Coalition for Smarter Growth is hosting a McMillan tour on Saturday, August 25th with architect Matt Bell, developer Aakash Thakkar, ANC 5C04 Commissioner Mark Mueller and Cheryl Cort, Policy Director, Coalition for Smarter Growth.
I recall that Cheryl Cort provided testimony at the recent DC Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) in * support * of the proposed development, so I don`t anticipate the pro-park people promoting this McMillan site tour too much.
Also from the Coalition for Smarter Growth event announcement: "This event is a part of Pro-DC. Pro-DC is a project of the Coalition for Smarter Growth and Greater Greater Washington to organize residents to support positive change in DC. Pro-DC advocates for an inclusive, growing city that offers transportation and housing choices for residents of all income levels, leading to a higher quality of life for everyone."
