Bloomingdale Civic Association Historic Preservation Committee panel discussion -- Tuesday, 06-23-2015

See the meeting announcement from the Bloomingdale Civic Association:

The Bloomingdale Civic Association Historic Preservation Committee will present a panel discussion to explain what historic designation means and how a Historic District (HD) designation is acquired.  
The District Office of Planning and the DC Preservation League will provide presentations about a Historic District designation and its implications, pros and cons, and how acquired?  Other residents who have experienced Historic District designation will offer their insights.  

We will also discuss the impact of the R-4 zoning regulations restricting pop-ups.  What do Bloomingdale residents want for their community?  Please come out and let us hear from you.

Light refreshments will be served.

  1. Irony of ironies, the existing McMillan Reservoir Historic District,, with all National and Local designation is being carved up like a Thanksgiving Turkey, or Pumpkin Pie to satiate the development conglomerate corporate profit at the expense of the taxpayer, and our public green space. So now the discussion of Historic District starts, historically ripped off and shoved under the bus, more like it. Join us in court, we have filed, in DC Superior Court, the Appeal of the Zoning decision that corrupts the L'Enfant/McMillan plan for open space, and ends 100 years of planned emerald necklace of parks for a gracious city.
    You , Bloomingdale can STOP VMP/FONTAINE subversion of our democratic rights.. Trammel Crow spent $100,000 with Carmen Group, the DC top lobby firm, on one visit to your at-large Council-member, David Grosso, who suddenly "can't wait to see the development get started". He also wants to see sculpture on the site, outdoor sculpture, but not the magnificent Herbert Adams McMillan Memorial Fountain, The Three Muses. David Grosso, clearly an art aficionado, he named his dogs "Diego and Frida". Are we in the hands of fools, or are they making fools out of us?

  2. so where is the Herbert Adams McMillan Memorial Fountain, the Three Muses, kept?
