ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland officials have voted to formally begin the process of issuing up to $400 million in bonds for developing an area around FedEx Field in Prince George’s County known as the Blue Line Corridor.
The Maryland Board of Public Works is comprised of Gov. Wes Moore, Comptroller Brooke Lierman and Treasurer Dereck Davis. They voted 3-0 on Wednesday for a memorandum of understanding for the development.
State and local officials have emphasized that the plan is to develop the area regardless of where the NFL’s Washington Commanders decide to play after the team’s lease ends in 2027 at FedEx.
