WHAT: The Washington Redskins' Larry Michael will meet with Ashby Ponds residents to discuss future plans for the training facility and answer questions. Ashby Ponds is located less than one mile from Redskins Park, and the two have been neighbors since the retirement community was built in 2008. With the recent announcement of training camp moving to the Richmond area, Ashby Ponds residents have questions about the future of Redskins Park.
