COOKE CONTINUES TO FIGHT FOR FAST TRACK APPROVAL FOR MD SITE
Published August 17, 1995
Redskins Owner Jack Kent Cooke continues to battle for fast- track approval for a new stadium site in Landover, MD. But he is hearing opposition from groups who want guarantees that "blacks get a hefty slice of the economic pie," according to this morning's WASHINGTON POST. The site is located in Prince George's County, which has an African-American majority population. Opposition groups say they fear Cooke's push for quick approval "would circumvent their ability to review the project." Cooke attorney Gerard Evans called those protesting "anti-everything organizations." Evans: "Frankly, I would have been shocked if they did support the stadium" (Terry Neal, WASHINGTON POST, 8/17).
