WTOP reported this morning that it will probably take at least a year before anything much could get started at the Point.
"The city government is going to be taking over federal property. How is the federal government going to be adequately compensated?" asks Bill Line, spokesperson for the National Park Service.
Poplar Point also includes U.S. Park Police headquarters, which employs more than 100 people and includes a heliport.
"There are plenty of people who work in those offices, but it has not yet been decided where all those people will go," Line says.
Can we keep the heliport in the next phase? thanks.
MacFarlane somehow still thinks that he will get a decision about the stadium "by the end of July", which now with competitive bidding and the complexities of the land transfer, seems quite unlikely.
