Residents near and far seek to preserve & protect the federally landmarked and registered historic McMillan Park and Sand Filtration Plant.
We seek an adaptive reuse of this amazing site in a way that won’t substantially disturb the existing open green plains, that highlights the above ground structures, and defends the wonderful viewsheds in all directions.
We also seek light recreational & commercial re-purposing of the fantastic subterranean waterworks.
