The organization managing the RFK Stadium campus wants members of the public to weigh in on two plans to redevelop the site.

That organization, Events DC, has put out the call for feedback on its website, as first reported by WTOP.

“After extensive planning, outreach, public input and involvement, Events DC is proud to present two concepts for the RFK Stadium-Armory Campus,” the website reads. “Our vision for the Campus’ future is to create a revitalized site that celebrates its iconic beauty and history – while also acting as a first-class example of urban living that can attract residents and visitors and at the same time maintain a strong local identity.”

The two concepts for the 190-acre site are:

  • Building a 65,000-seat National Football League stadium
  • Building a 20,000-seat sports arena that could host the Wizards and Capitals, replacing the Verizon Center.

In an unscientific poll we conducted earlier this month, 54 percent of you said you supported a third plan that had “no professional sports facilities, but cultural attractions.”

    It looks like the two options are stich or N/S axis design, and then each of those has 3 options for an anchor – NFL / 20K seat arena, or no anchor site. What they’re asking for is feedback on the street layout, not what the anchor site will be.
