AS EIGHT-YEAR SAGA CONTINUES, COOKE LOOKS FOR FAST TRACK
Published June 28, 1995
Redskins Owner Jack Kent Cooke yesterday asked Prince George's County, MD, to "exempt his latest stadium proposal from four levels of public review, which could cut a year off the normal planning process" (Pierre & Neal, WASHINGTON POST, 6/28). Cooke's request placed stadium bills on a "fast-track" that could amend zoning laws by August 1. The three bills: 1) One would amend zoning laws to let the Redskins build on land primarily designated for residential and retail use. 2) Another would effectively exempt the Redskins from the county's "adequate public facilities" test, which requires developers to ensure that their projects do not cause a "severe burden on local services"; 3) The county would extend water and sewer services to the area Cooke is interested in, which currently receives no such services (John Mercurio, WASHINGTON TIMES, 6/28).
