Maryland lawmakers want to invest state funds in the area around FedExField, whether or not the Commanders get a new stadium.
The House Appropriations Committee approved $400 million bonding authority on Monday for Prince George’s County. The funds would be earmarked for investments along the Blue Line Metro corridor.
If approved, the funding will not go toward a new Commanders stadium, but rather would invest in communities surrounding FedExField.
Projects include an amphitheater, a smaller sports field house, a library cultural center, a market hall and a civic plaza. Images of the proposed developments were featured in renderings you saw first on News4, showing what could surround a new Commanders stadium at the FedExField site. Read more at NBC 4.
