COUNCIL APPROVES FAST TRACK LEGISLATION FOR REDSKINS STADIUM
Published September 6, 1995
The Prince George's County Council last night approved three measures to speed the review of Redskins Owner Jack Kent Cooke's request to build a new stadium in Landover, (WRC-Channel 4). The three measures will do the following: 1) Amend zoning laws to create a reduced 70-day stadium review process; 2) Exempt the Redskins from the "adequate public facilities" test, which requires that projects not severely burden such public service as roads; and 3) Call for the extension of water and sewer service to the proposed Wilson Farm site (John Mercurio, WASHINGTON TIMES, 9/6).
