Good McMillan Peeps,

Happy Friday!

About Thursday Night:
  • Per the typical ratios of community output, McMillan supporters outpaced those in favor 5:1
  • The Office of Planning gave their opinion as to why they approve building downtown sized buildings next to rowhouses vulnerable to gentrification
  • The Dept of the Environment could not answer questions about their own studies
  • DDOT says the developer will pay for the stop signs, cameras, traffic lights, and other "mitigation"
  • The Secretary of the Commission would not accept printed testimony by those who were not actually present at the hearing leaving numerous people wanting to participate out the "the process"
  • Cheryl Cort of Smart Growth DC admitted that Vision McMillan developers fund her organizing
