To Save or Not to Save McMillan Park?

Despite vocal opposition from residents, the $730 million project tor redeveloping the McMillan Sand Filtration Plant will continue. During a joint public roundtable on Wednesday, Mayor-elect Muriel Bowser said she is "pleased we are here to move forward." Councilman Kenyan McDuffle described the current 25-acre site as "more of an eyesore," and added, "I look forward to the fence being removed." Even so, opposition from nearly 100 residents at the meeting, including those in advocacy group Friends of McMillan, remained strong against the project. A few issues residents vocalized included that the site, itself, is a historic landmark, that there is no nearby Metro station to the site, and that there is already "plenty of traffic congestion."
