Yesterday the Historic Preservation Review Board met and began their review of our revised Master Plan for the McMillan Sand Filtration Site. We presented the new site plan:
2013-02-14 Park South siteplan
Also, some new images of the site, so that you can get a good idea of what the place will look like, for example– this is a view down Half Street, NW, which will serve as the north side entry portal to the central park:
We also provided this view of the South Service Court from North Capitol Street looking west, with “floating” silos and a partial view of the recreation center:
After hearing the new plan from VMP, the board listened to testimony from community members. The presentation and testimony took the full amount of time the project had been allotted on the HPRB agenda. The project has been continued to their next meeting, at which the board will provide their feedback.
We were happy to see how many people came out to provide their input, and also happy to see how many people took the time to write letters expressing their viewpoints.
