On December 17th, at the meeting of the Commission on Parks and Recreation, Project 250 formally presented its Alternatives Analysis proposing to build a Multi-Sport, Entertainment & Youth Development Center (“Velodrome”) in FDR Park.

While the Parks Alliance appreciates the benefits that the construction of the Velodrome could bring to the city and the efforts that Project 250 has made to create a sustainable project and to enhance FDR Park and the community, we cannot support the development of the proposed 5,844 spectator capacity sports, concert and entertainment arena in FDR Park. Learn why.

As we have expressed to Project 250, we stand ready to assist them in identifying another location for the Velodrome.  Read the Parks Alliance’s full comments.
