McMillan referenced in WBJ article on OP vs. DC Council proposed DC Comprehensive Plan changes

This WBJ article is behind a pay firewall, so only a few paragraphs are provided below, including a paragraph that mentions -- can you guess? -- McMillan.

Developers say D.C. comp plan changes won't do enough to beat back frequent legal challenges


Many District developers have waited with bated breath for the release of proposed changes to D.C.’s comprehensive plan — and now that the wait is over, the new amendments are earning decidedly mixed reviews.                          

...
Trueblood agrees with that point, to an extent. He pointed to the recent court ruling allowing the long-stalled McMillan sand filtration plant redevelopment to move ahead as evidence the comp plan isn’t holding PUDs back all on its own.

Join Cultivate the City's
interactive workshop and discover the art of making hot sauce from Cultivate
the City's lead farmer, Niraj Ray! Every year, CTC makes several different types
of hot sauces from their unique (and super spicy) fresh peppers, and they are
finally ready to share the knowledge and show you how to design and make your
own! We will start with a quick tour of Common Good City Farm and show some of
the hot peppers currently growing on the farm. We will have a variety of fresh
peppers (Bhut Jolokia, Scorpion, Carolina Reapers, Thai Chili, Jalapeno,
Habanero, Aji Charapita, Aji Amarillo, Aji Chombo, and more) to choose from to
make the hot suace and jump right into making some blends. You'll learn about
some of the secret ingredients that make their way into most of our sauces and
the flavor profiles of different peppers and how to make a shelf-stable product
with minimal processing. Finally you'll get a chance to sample everyone's
creations, as well as taste the new hot sauces we've been cooking up for 2019!

READ ME: DC Water NEBT -- Traffic & parking restrictions at 1st Street and Rhode Island Avenue NW

NEBT: Traffic & Parking Restrictions at First Street and Rhode Island Avenue NW











Northeast Boundary Tunnel Project
First Street NW Pumping Station Construction Site Newsletter
July 19, 2019






Greetings,




The First Street NW Pumping Station Construction Site jet grout work was delayed due to the additional coordination with the District Department of Transportation on the traffic light infrastructure. DC Water's contractor is rebuilding a collapsed electrical conduit under Rhode Island Avenue, NW. Once that work is complete, the existing signals in the middle of Rhode Island Avenue at First Street, NW will be removed, traffic will be shifted, and the contractor will mobilize for jet grout work to begin at the intersection of Rhode Island Avenue and First Street, NW. This work is expected to begin the week of July 22, 2019.

The contractor will install jet grout columns on the north side of the intersection at First Street and Rhode Island Avenue, NW. One method of stabilizing the soil on the Northeast Boundary Tunnel Project is a process known as jet grouting, a method of ground improvement that involves injecting cement and water into the soil at very high pressures to solidify and strengthen the ground.  The improved ground will allow safe excavation in the stabilized ground to connect the existing First Street Tunnel with the new Northeast Boundary Tunnel.

Work is expected to begin the week of July 22, 2019,  from 7 AM – 7 PM, Monday – Friday, and will continue for approximately eight (8) months (weather permitting).

Travel Restrictions
  • Rhode Island Avenue, NW between 2nd Street, NW and North Capitol Street, NW will be reduced to two lanes of traffic in each direction.
  • First Street NW between Thomas Street and Rhode Island Avenue will be closed to northbound traffic. Detour signs will be in place to direct traffic to 2nd Street, NW.
Parking Restrictions
  • Parking will be restricted on the north and south sides of Rhode Island Avenue, NW between North Capitol Street and 2nd Street, NW. 
  • There will also be restrictions to parking on both sides of First Street, NW between Thomas Street and Rhode Island Avenue, NW.

Pedestrian Detours
  • The north side crosswalk at the intersection of First Street and Rhode Island Avenue, NW will be closed.
  • The eastbound crosswalk on Rhode Island Avenue, NW at First Street will be closed. Detour signs will be posted to direct pedestrians.

Project Details
The Northeast Boundary Tunnel is the largest component of the Clean Rivers Project. It begins south of RFK Stadium and will extend north to Rhode Island Avenue, NE and west to 6th Street NW. When complete, the approximately five-mile long tunnel will significantly reduce chronic flooding in areas it serves, as well as reduce the amount of combined sewer overflows into the Anacostia River by 98%.
