The Robert F. Kennedy (RFK Redevelopment City-Wide Meeting will take place from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 24th at St. Luke Parish (4925 E. Capitol St. SE). Food is provided. The meeting is free and open to the public.

Attend the meeting to hear about and give feedback on the latest developments regarding the future of the RFK Campus, including timelines on short-term campus program elements such as the multi-purpose recreational fields and environmental assessment. Updates will also include upcoming RFK Campus events.

Events DC, the sports and entertainment authority of the District, currently holds a lease with National Parks Serve (NPS) on the property which is set to expire in 2038. Last year, they presented an ambitious $500 million plan for short-term development to take place over the next ten to fifteen years, likely even before the current stadium is torn down. The short-term plans include multi-purpose recreational fields, a market hall, a sports and entertainment complex and a Robert F. Kennedy Memorial.

The longer-term project to redevelop the main stadium could take 30 years or more, but Events DC and the community have yet to decide on what will fill that space.

The RFK Campus Quarterly Community Meeting has been rescheduled for Monday, February 5th from 7:00 p.m.- 8:30 p.m. That meeting will be held on the Fourth Floor of the RFK Stadium Administrative Offices (2400 E. Capitol St SE Washington, DC 20003). Access to the office is through Gate A, adjacent to parking lot five.
