“Demolition of Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium can proceed”

Published by on

“The National Park Service (NPS) has evaluated the potential effects on the natural, cultural and human environment related to the demolition of Robert F. Kennedy Memorial (RFK) Stadium and has determined that the stadium can be demolished.

In the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI), which was signed April 29, 2024, the NPS explains the decision and describes conservation measures that will be taken to avoid and minimize negative effects.

The next step is for the NPS to issue a permit to the District of Columbia, which would allow the District to demolish the stadium. In addition to the permit, the NPS and the District will sign an agreement that confirms the District’s continued use and demolition of the property will follow the 1957 District of Columbia Stadium Act’s requirements.

RFK Stadium is located on NPS land, however the District of Columbia owns the stadium, and Events DC is responsible for its operation and management. The stadium, which opened in 1961, is in a state of disrepair and has not been used since 2019. Events DC has already removed hazardous materials, stadium seats, furniture, fixtures, equipment, trash and debris.

The FONSI and other planning documents are available
