Prince William County just took a big step toward building a new stadium for the Potomac Nationals, a minor league baseball team affiliated with the Washington Nationals.The board of county supervisors voted 5-3 on March 7 to approve a letter of intent to build the $35 million stadium for the Single-A team on a site near Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center in Woodbridge, following months of negotiations with team owner Art Silber and the JBG Cos., which owns the land and surrounding town center.

Supervisors Ruth Anderson, R-Occoquan, Pete Candland, R-Gainesville, and Jeanine Lawson, R-Brentsville, provided the dissenting votes.Though those supervisors expressed reservations about some of the deal conditions, the board largely saw the letter of intent as a positive step to keep negotiations on the stadium moving.

“This allows us to continue the dialogue,” said Supervisor Frank Principi, D-Woodbridge.
