COOKE FACING GROUPS OF "CONCERNED CITIZENS" AT EVERY TURN
Published October 17, 1994
A group of Washington, DC, residents said that they oppose any efforts by Jack Kent Cooke to revive plans to build a new stadium for the Redskins near RFK Stadium. Cooke had intended to build a stadium in nearby Laurel MD, but last Wednesday a county officer denied Cooke's plan citing concern over increased traffic and limited parking. Concerned Citizens of Kingman Park Chair Veronica Raglin said that a new stadium in DC would have a "devastating impact on the neighborhood environmentally." Among the environmental problems cited by stadium opponents are dangerous levels of asbestos in the framework of RFK, serious levels of possibly toxic lead in the soil around the stadium site, car exhaust and noise (Matt Neufeld, WASHINGTON TIMES, 10/17).
