DC govt. spends $1,000,000, a million dollars to just "Study" North Capitol Deck over, a very inhospitable HOT un-sheltered spot over a busy highway and congested RI Ave. They say it will decrease urban heat island effect, but paving over 25 acre McMillan Park with 50 heat and CO2 emitting buildings and bringing 20,000 or more additional pollution spewing autos and trucks to congested N.Cap, will surely make much worse the urban heat is;land effect. GET SMART BLOOMINGDALE, SAVE THE PARK. I think you are all held hostage to VMP, a mediocre development conglomerate, basically stealing the land(in my humble opinion). Bowser and King Mendelson writes and re-writes the law to force "the Monstrosity on Michigan Avenue" on us. As California burns in a massive drought, we could grow food right here at McMillan.
Please see this fascinating video on our future for fresh urban food and farmed fish:
McMillan Park 25 acres public green space could be great urban gardening reclamation project so we started Committee for the McMillan Park Conservancy to advocate the international trend for adaptive re-use of historic sites. We need a Central Park large scale for kids, and outdoor concert stage, Glen Echo arts and classes campus, even outdoor schools are the trend to resist covid.

The 20 acre stable subterranean concrete structures are 14 feet in height, cool year round, preserving the waterworks is just wise, even as emergency shelter or clean water system to mitigate low flows of the Potomac. Already a beautiful hybrid park and city utility for many decades, the Olmsted landscaping can be restored, and outdoor recreation with sunset views of the monuments is sitting right there.The people of Washington own this 25 acre green-space, was enjoyed as the only integrated park by DC African-American community 1905 to 1941. Get smart and get assertive, what a golden opportunity BLOWN!!!, Daniel Goldon wolkoff
