There are two big hearings today on the fate of the stadium parking--at 10 am
the city council's Subcommittee on Economic Development will take up PR 16-852
, the "South Capitol Street Development Disposition Approval Resolution of 2006
," the proposal to sell the parking lot land to Herb Miller's Western Development Corp. However, Thursday's Post is reporting that DC CFO Gandhi is raising doubts
about the ability of the city to work out the financing details quickly enough to allow the stadium to go forward and stay on schedule. (But everyone will breathe a sigh of relief to hear that Marion Barry has an idea for a solution!) Then at 5:30 pm, the Zoning Commission will hold a second hearing on Case 06-22, District of Columbia Sports and Entertainment Commission - Construction of a Major League Baseball Ballpark
, and take the case up for action. Fun fun fun!
