AROUND THE BELTWAY, PEOPLE SPEAK OUT AGAINST FACILITIES
Published July 18, 1995
Before a "largely skeptical and sometimes raucous crowd" in MD last night, Redskins representatives described their plan for a new stadium to the Prince George's County Council. More than 350 residents showed up for the hearing on Owner Jack Kent Cooke's proposal to build a 78,000-seat stadium. Cooke has asked the county to put the stadium proposal on a fast-track so that it can be completed in time for the '97 season (Neal & Lonhardt, WASHINGTON POST, 7/18). DC ARENA: A public hearing before the National Capital Planning Commission and officials from the DC Government addressed residents' concerns that the proposed MCI Center's closing of G Street will "erode" Washington's "unique baroque style." Last week, Bullets/Capitals Owner Abe Pollin won approval from the Chinatown Steering Committee for the project after submitting a new design for the facility (WASHINGTON TIMES, 7/18).
