The Prince William Chamber of Commerce has endorsed the Potomac Nationals stadium project being proposed in Woodbridge.
According to a release, the Chamber’s Board of Directors voted unanimously in support of the project.
“Earlier this year, Prince William County approved their new strategic plan. That plan calls for what the County has branded as their ‘moonshot goal’ of more than doubling the existing commercial tax base. Projects like this one only come around but so often and if the County is serious about meeting their economic development goals, they should support these types of initiatives,” stated incoming Chamber Chairman Jim Elliott in a release.
The decision to endorse came after several meetings with stakeholders on the project, stated a release.
The Chamber’s Economic Development Committee Chairman Gary Jones II also weighed in.
“I hear from business owners regularly on how they would like to see our region be more aggressive in terms of our approach to economic development. I am glad that the Chamber’s Board voted to endorse the stadium. This project, along with the great work JBG Companies has already done in the corridor, has the opportunity to fundamentally reshape economic development in eastern Prince William County,” stated Jones in a release.
Here’s the letter the Chamber sent to the Prince William Board of County Supervisors:
