Catacombs below McMillan Park, a decommissioned water treatment plant in Northwest D.C.

A recent court ruling put the brakes on plans to put “mixed use” buildings there, a victory for the activists who want to preserve an open space where they see historic value. Kojo explores what’s at stake in the debate and where it’s heading next.
