Fenty, Gray and Brown want to block SEED expansion

DC Council members Adrian Fenty, Vincent Gray and Kwame Brown are trying to introduce legislation to block the SEED foundation from expanding the facilities for their chartered boarding school.
The legislation ... coincides with neighborhood leadersÂ’ plan to rally today outside of the offices of the SEED Foundation in Northwest to protest what they call an "“outrageous"” attempt by the group to put a new campus in their neighborhood.

SEED is proposing a 600-student campus --— nearly twice the size of its current campus in Anacostia --— on a 15-acre site that currently serves as a parking lot for RFK Stadium.
