RFK Stadium is losing its last anchor tenant, and now communities are thinking about what to do in the areas surrounding it.

RFK Stadium is losing its last anchor tenant, and now communities are thinking about what to do in the areas surrounding it.

D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton put forth a motion last month that would extend the District’s lease on the area in Southeast D.C. surrounding RFK Stadium. Some want to stay true to the requirements of the lease by putting recreational facilities there, while others want to build housing. What challenges do these desires pose, and what will the RFK site look like in 20 years? Kojo discusses with community members.
