? care to testify at the DC Council Committee of the Whole hearing on McMillan -- Monday, 10-26-2015 ?

Did you know that the never-built streets on the McMillan Sand Filtration site – the unit blocks of Franklin St NW, Evarts St NW and Douglas St NW – have to be officially closed? That is the 2nd legislative item listed below.

  1. Of interest to residents, especially the ones on surrounding streets, may be the extension of the time to dispose of the land could lengthen the time the construction will take place. "The outside closing date for the phase 2 parcels will therefore be no later than 2021." That means vertical construction could start after that. Completion date unknown. That's a long time to live with construction.
