In total, representatives will be present from the Board of County Supervisors, the Virginia Department of Transportation, the Potomac Nationals and PTC Roadside Development LLC.

This press conference is just the first step in determining the new location of the stadium, Principi's office said. At the conference, Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center will be announced as a viable and strong option. 

Speculation as to the new location of the Potomac Nationals stadium has been growing since 2011.

chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors Corey Stewart said the county was pushing to have a new stadium in the county by 2013.

was looking at a location along Interstate 95 that would give the stadium much better visibility and accessibility than its current location. He added that the county will not directly finance the new stadium, but that the team will finance it by selling the naming rights.

InsideNova.com reported in January that the announcement of a new stadium site was delayed due to figuring out a parking garage situation.

Isn't it debatable that there is unwanted traffic already based on traffic heading to Stonebridge? The thing is, you purchased on Potomac Club knowing the development boom that was taking place in your immediate vicinity including the Town Center, The Medical Building and the Apartments in your own Neighborhood. Trust me, I know because I live in Potomac Club also. Right on the good old Pulte side. I don't mind a bit because I knew what I was singing up for when I purchased my house. Along with future Mixed-Used development across Dale Blvd, The Wartime Museum behind the McDonalds, the Apartment complex across from our neighborhood on Route 1, the planned Apartment development less than 200 yards from that adjacent to the Nissan Dealership, the planned development adjacent to the Library, the Planned apartment complex near PW Parkway and I95, the Bobby Flav's, Cheesecake Factory, and Bahama Breeze, etc. etc. etc. The Baseball stadium is the lease of your concerns. My point is the area is developing at a rapid rate. You have to accept that. What was once morbid and a serious image problem is now becoming a more attractive place for businesses and residents. Big BRAC transitions may have forced our hands into such development. But as long as great minds continue to create and hopefully mitigate any infrastructure issues to support this rapid development, then I'm all for it. Maybe when you sell, you may see some equity vs being underwater. Thank you development

PWC has been headed head directly away from that future for decades. It's not practical to walk or bike to the Wegmans shopping center or whatever they are calling it now, much less light rail or transit of any kind. This will be great for anyone that wants to sit in their car more for recreation after sitting in their car for work.
