In a masterful move on the part of
Mayor for Life Councilman Marion Shepilov Barry, the new baseball stadium may yet be enveloped in a wonderful, pedestrian-friendly, pro-city mixed use development instead of isolated on a barren asphalt parking lot.
According to the WashPost:
Council member Marion Barry (D-Ward 8) was leading the effort and had distributed a bill that seeks to alter the $611 million stadium cost cap approved by the council in March. The legislation would allow the city to spend money from the sale of development rights on stadium land to pay for the parking garages.
While Metroblogging DC would like to encourage his resurrection of the beautiful Herb Miller plan, Barry was unavailable for comment.
