After much discussion about FBI’s relocation to Greenbelt north core, there is a new rumor about FBI’s possible relocation to BARC – Beltsville Agricultural Center.
According to this Greenbelt Patch article, Greenbelt City Council member Roberts has recently alarmed the Council with his opposition to such a move.
The article has also revealed that the Walmart is eyeing to move to the north part of BARC near IKEA.
Mr. Roberts said the Barc will reduce to nothing if these two developments happen on its current site.
“BARC has been whittled down from around 14,000 acres to around 6,000. If the FBI takes another 50 acres, the reduction of BARC will continue until there’s nothing left, Roberts worried. Already, Walmart wants a part of BARC’s south farm near IKEA, he said.” - according to the article.
