Montgomery County recently announced their decision to sublease the Brickyard Road property in Potomac to Montgomery Soccer, Inc. for the development of soccer fields.
County spokesman Patrick Lacefield released the following statement to Patch Friday:
"The selection committee has completed its proposal review and negotiations with MSI for the development of fields at the Brickyard Road property. MSI was the only offeror to submit a proposal in response to the advertised RFQ. MSI will be performing its work under a sub-lease from the County."
Public notice of the intended sublease was released Friday in the Washington Examiner.
The Brickyard Coalition, made up of civic organizations opposing the soccer field project, has said it is disappointed with the county's decision and but has not yet issued a formal response.
"We're very disappointed. Obviously this county has continued on the path of what we consider the wrong side of this issue," said coalition member Keith Williams.
