Why is there not more concern over the proposed water project at the McMillan site?
As a resident of Stronghold I am concerned that the just-announced massive water project that will be taking place over the next few years on 1st street in Bloomingdale and on the McMillan site will negatively effect the development plans for the site. When there has been so much wrangling over use of the McMillan site for development there was no public input whatsoever on the water project; why? Also, the Mayor’s press release stated that there would be no impact on the McMillan development, but an email today by the project developers suggests that there will be an impact; who is correct?
Considering the hundreds of millions of dollars at stake for the city, the development of a prime, DC-owned parcel of land and the impact on residents of Stronghold, Brookland and Bloomingdale it seems crazy that there is not more information on this in the public. I suppose that my question is one of why no one seems to be paying attention to the water project when it may have such a massive effect on so many people.
