Yesterday, we posted some comments on our website from Ward 8 residents stating their positions on the soccer stadium proposed for Poplar Point. From what I’ve heard, local leaders seem to be lining up behind the stadium, while regular residents are a bit more skeptical. Back in September, local non-profit One DC released results from a survey about the stadium. Some three hundred Anacostia residents participated. NBC News 4 covered the story. At that time, 87 percent of those questioned opposed the stadium construction (no matter how it was funded). Here’s a brochure detailing Clark Realty’s proposed development of Poplar Point. Be sure to check out the Metro Soccer District (p. 20), and then see what some folks are saying about it.
