The article reports on the announcement by District of Columbia officials that they had found nearly 9,000 potential parking spaces near the site of a new baseball stadium, estimated to be enough to handle a crowd of 41,000. A proposed parking facility would be privately financed, so the announcement is not likely to lead to any additional bond tied up to the $611 million ballpark. Nevertheless, it could indirectly impact the district's ability to service bonds issued to finance the stadium's construction if the city is unable to secure the parking by the time the stadium is completed.
