Mayor-Elect Bowser Issues Statement on Initial Approval of Soccer Stadium Deal

Tuesday, December 2, 2014

(Washington, DC) – Mayor-Elect Muriel Bowser issued the following statement regarding the unanimous Council approval of the new DC soccer stadium deal:

“The future of a brand new soccer stadium took a big step towards becoming a reality today. I am thankful to my Council colleagues for stepping up to support a deal that treats all stakeholders fairly and promotes an open and transparent process for District taxpayers. De-linking the Reeves Center means more community input and a deal that will be made on the District’s terms. I am confident that together with Mayor Gray and Chairman Mendelson, we will be able to finance a facility that will create jobs, spur development, and provide quality housing for more residents for years to come.”
