We learned just minutes ago that the D.C. Court of Appeals has ruled in our favor, remanding and vacating the zoning order and the two historic preservation decisions of the D.C. government.
This is a great victory for our long efforts to try to get our city to observe its own rules and regulations as they pertain to this lovely historic park.
But what happens next?
We don't know. The court has remanded this case back to the city, and we look forward to seeing what the city will do. We would like to work with the city to do what is right for our park.
But there is now hope that a reasonable process can happen for our McMillan Park.
On behalf of the Friends of McMillan Park and the thousands of people who have helped us and have helped our park, I do not have sufficient words of thanks, but please accept these simple words: THANK YOU! And please share with us the great joy we have in this triumph -- a triumph for openness in government.
More to follow soon!
Thank you for your continued interest and support,
John Salatti, Kirby Vining, and Hugh Youngblood Board of Directors, Friends of McMillan Park, Inc.
