Prince William Chamber urges officials support new Potomac Nationals stadium in Woodbridge

From a press release: 

This morning the Board of Directors of the Prince William Chamber of Commerce unanimously voted to endorse the proposed Potomac Nationals stadium in eastern Prince William County. After several months of meetings with representatives from the County and the project, Chamber Board members agreed the new stadium represents a significant economic opportunity that should not be missed by Prince William County.

“Earlier this year, Prince William County approved their new strategic plan. That plan calls for what the County has branded as their ‘moonshot goal’ of more than doubling the existing commercial tax base,” said 2017-2018 Chamber Chairman, Jim Elliott. “Projects like this one only come around but so often and if the County is serious about meeting their economic development goals, they should support these types of initiatives.”

The Chamber’s Economic Development Committee Chairman, Gary Jones, II, stated, “I hear from business owners regularly on how they would like to see our region be more aggressive in terms of our approach to economic development. I am glad that the Chamber’s Board voted to endorse the stadium. This project, along with the great work JBG Companies has already done in the corridor, has the opportunity to fundamentally reshape economic development in eastern Prince William County.”

    If Art Silber wants to build a stadium, well, great! If he demands I pay for it he can pound sand.

      Make your voices heard loud and clear. I would love for the Nationals to move to Richmond, VA but I really do not think the taxpayers should be forced to pay for a stadium they do not want.

    Nicholas, we can’t vote BECAUSE we are against it. Silber won’t pay the mortgage,…we will.

    If Prince William County cannot work out a deal to get a new stadium and the Potomac Nationals move, I would really like them to please move to Richmond, VA. I detest the Richmond Flying Squirrels and the parent club, the San Francisco Giants. I would welcome a class A advanced affiliate of the Potomac Nationals rather than have to put up with ANY affiliate of the Giants.
