DC ARENA FACING HISTORICAL OBSTACLES; INCLUDING WATER SYSTEM
Published July 11, 1995
In testimony before the DC Historic Preservation Review Board, city officials and consultants hired by the National Capital Planning Commission said they have unearthed unique remains of what could be a makeshift water system on the land slatd for Bullets/Caps Owner Abe Pollin's new arena, according to the WASHINGTON TIMES. The discovery could make the site eligible for nomination to the National Historic Register which would hinder Pollin's efforts (Lorraine Woellert, WASHINGTON TIMES, 7/11). The DCHPRB does not have veto power over the area, but will make recommendations to the DC government and the federal National Capital Planning Commission (Maryann Haggerty, WASHINGTON POST, 7/11).
