Events DC has released design concepts for redeveloping the RFK site with either a new football stadium, a basketball and hockey arena or no major sports venue.

Residents will have an opportunity to comment on those ideas at a public meeting on Thursday evening. If you can’t make tonight’s meeting, you’ll have more oppurtunities to have your voice heard.

RFK was the longtime home of the Washington Redskins before the team moved to Prince George’s County after the 1996 season.

The stadium also hosted the Washington Nationals before the team’s new ballpark was built. Its last major tenant, D.C. United, is scheduled to leave when its new soccer-specific stadium opens next year.

RSVP for tonight’s event here.
