POLLIN'S DOWNTOWN ARENA SITE TO GET ENVIRONMENTAL STUDY
"Concerns over parking and the proposed closing of G Street"
have led DC officials to order an in-depth environmental study of
the proposed site for Bullats & Caps Owner Abe Pollin's new
arena, according to the WASHINGTON TIMES. Pollin has reportedly
agreed to the study. The statement is said to take four to six
weeks to complete, and according to DC Corporation Counsel Claude
Bailey, the study "shouldn't delay" the targeted October ground-
breaking (Lorraine Woellert, WASHINGTON TIMES, 5/13).
