Second RFK Study Meeting Set for Sept. 30

Events DC will host a second community meeting to seek feedback on its RFK Stadium Redevelopment Study this Wed., Sept. 30, 6-9 pm at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center (801 Mount Vernon Place NW). Note that the meeting will take place in the West Salon on the street level.

As I mentioned in my recap of the first community meeting, there is little support for a new NFL Stadium in the neighborhoods surrounding the RFK Stadium site. By dubbing this second meeting a “citywide” meeting and holding it downtown, Mayor Bowser and Events DC expects (or “hopes” may be the better term) to hear more support for a new NFL stadium.

We had a great turnout for the first meeting and need a similarly strong turnout for the downtown meeting. Please plan to attend all or a portion of the Sept. 30 meeting. Your participation will help ensure that DC residents have a say in the future of this valuable, waterfront site.
