About the Federal City Council
Established in 1954, the Federal City Council (FC2 or "Council") is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to the improvement of the District of Columbia. Since its founding, the FC2 has a rich history of achievement, having played a critical role in the creation of Metro, the renovation of Union Station, the establishment of the Verizon Center, and the redevelopment of Pennsylvania Avenue. Comprised of the area’s top business, professional, education and civic leaders, the Council works with the District and federal governments to develop and implement solutions to important community problems. By serving as a trusted partner for civic improvement, and by bringing to bear the knowledge, experience, access, and resources of its members, the Council plays a critical role in the advancement of the District of Columbia.

Federal City Council (FC2) would like to congratulate Mayor Bowser on reaching a negotiated settlement for the Pepco-Exelon merger. FC2 has supported the merger of Pepco and Exelon since it was announced in April 2014. We have argued in testimony and public statements that a stronger, merged company will provide improved service reliability and substantial economic benefits to the District of Columbia.
