Published July 28, 1995
The Redskins "received a rare open-arms welcome from a local government yesterday," with the approval of a zoning change that could cut a year from the process of building a new stadium from a Prince George's County Council committee, according to this morning's WASHINGTON POST. Redskins Owner Jack Kent Cooke wants to build a 78,000-seat stadium in suburban Landover near the Capital Beltway. The full council is expected to vote on the zoning changes in September (David Leonhardt, WASHINGTON POST, 7/28).
