On August 5, 2020, McMillan supporters will testify before the District of Columbia Board of Zoning Adjustment in BZA Appeal Case No. 20191. See the record of that appeal here: https://tinyurl.com/dc-bza-appeal-20191
Ardent Save McMillan Park coalition supporters persist in asking the city to follow its own laws before destroying the site, at the very least for our safety and well being. More strongly, we are asking that any demolition of the historic site be permanently stopped. We are before the BZA to argue the zoning laws are being ignored.

Feel free to edit into your own words keeping the intent of the testimony clear.
I support this appeal in BZA Case No. 20191.
My unique interest in this important historic site along with the Appellants means it is paramount the law be followed pertaining to zoning as well as to preservation.
All existing historic preservation covenants that run with the site in perpetuity should be included in the land covenants that are required to be recorded according to the zoning regulations. The Zoning Administrator failed to ensure this.
Moreover, the McMillan Master Plan requires another look by the Zoning Commission in a Second-Stage Planned Unit Development review before any demolition can begin. This is clear in their first Zoning Order No. 13-14(6).
The law is clear. Please affirm the appeal.
As a person with keen interest in the site, the historic McMillan Park and currently proposed redevelopment plans are . . .
