At a “ground breaking” ceremony yesterday the Mayor said: “Today’s groundbreaking is the culmination of nearly 30 years of work to ensure the McMillan redevelopment will best serve the residents of Ward 5”

Alas it may require a bit more than 30 years… WAMU reports:

“In its ruling, the a three-judge panel found that the Zoning Commission did not adequately justify its decision to allow the proposed development at McMillan to exceed zoning limits for the site in the city’s Comprehensive Plan.

But the court’s ruling wasn’t a total win for the Friends of McMillan Park. In the ruling, the court’s judges found that high-density development could be permitted on the site, despite it being zoned for lower levels of density.”

Updates. No, no more updates for a while. I have McMillan fatigue. Updates when something concrete, no pun intended, happens one way or the other. In the meantime:
