The National Park Service (NPS) has launched a competitive solicitation for the lease of three Washington, D.C. golf courses and a tennis center, bringing an end to negotiations with the Federal City Council.
The federal agency has issued a request for information (RFI), the responses to which will be used to craft a formal solicitation for the lease and improvement of the East Potomac Tennis Center, East Potomac Golf Course, Langston Golf Course and Rock Creek Golf Course. It’s an all-or-none deal: No consideration will be given, per the request for information, “to interested parties who are not willing to lease and operate all premises under one lease.”
LCA encourages neighbors to get started sharing ideas for improvements that they'd like to see at the course now and share them with Comm. Sydelle Moore (5D05) and Comm. Bernice Blacknell (5D04) at the joint Carver/Langston SMD meeting on February 23, 2019 at 10am at the Patsy V. Hartsfield Center (2026 Maryland Ave. NE).
