WASHINGTON'S MONUMENT? In DC, Daniel Sernovitz reported DC United officials are “still pushing forward with plans to develop a new soccer stadium in the Washington region” despite the resignation of Payne, who was "an advocate for those efforts.” DC United Senior VP/Marketing Communications Doug Hicks said, “We are working through a process and have made some real progress. We have a team that’s dedicated to that effort and that work continues.” DC and team officials have said that they “would like to see a stadium built at Buzzard Point, and both sides have acknowledged ongoing negotiations.” But Hicks said that the team is “still weighing all of its options and would not rule out the prospect of a new stadium being built in Maryland or Virginia instead” (BIZJOURNALS.com, 11/28).
