Third Meeting on Future of RFK Stadium Campus to be Held in Ward 7 Today
Events DC, the group that operated the RFK Stadium campus, will hold its third citywide meeting on the future of the stadium campus this evening near the Benning Road Metro Station in Ward 7.
The meeting, which will be held at St. Luke Center at 4923 50th St. SE from 6:30-8:30 p.m., will follow the same format as previous meetings at the Convention Center and St. Coletta of Greater Washington.
Representatives from Events DC will explain the planning process for the site before giving residents an opportunity to say what they would like to see at the site.
“We’re going to provide an opportunity for residents to give us feedback and look at the 190-acre Stadium-Armory campus as a blank slate and let us know what they would like to see,” Events DC’s Director of Communications and Marketing Pete Kirschner said. “Ideas we’ve heard already are anything from amphitheaters to access to the river.”
Today’s meeting will be the first meeting on the RFK Stadium campus to be held East of the River, though residents from any part of the D.C. area are welcome to attend.
“This area is not just for one part of the city,” Kirschner said. “The way we’re approaching this is by engaging various user groups from all across the region and looking at this very holistically.”
Those interested in attending the meeting can RSVP online or go online to watch videos from previous meetings on the RFK campus.
