From a press release:

“Next week, Councilmember Muriel Bowser will host two hearings on the subject of Bill 20-805, the District of Columbia Soccer Stadium Development Act of 2014, which would result in the construction of a new soccer stadium in Buzzard Point in Ward 6 and the redevelopment of the Frank D. Reeves Municipal Center in Ward 1. The hearings offer the residents of communities most likely to be affected by the proposal an opportunity to participate in the legislative process at a time that is convenient for many work schedules, and at a location that is proximate to their homes.
