VIRGINIA GROUP NAMES POSSIBLE STADIUM SITES
Published December 21, 1994
Fairfax County, VA, officials revealed 12 possible sites for a stadium they hope to build for a baseball expansion team for Northern VA. The sites are spread throughout the county, with officials saying an ideal site would be "more than 100 acres, close to a major highway and an existing or planned rail system." A 33-member committee will narrow the list down to "two or three" preferred sites within a month. Loudoun County has also identified two sites for a potential stadium. Outgoing Fairfax Board Chair Tom Davis, who will represent the area in Congress starting in '95, has said the estimated $250M needed for a facility would be paid for "almost completely with money generated by the development" (Eric Lipton, WASHINGTON POST, 12/21).
