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.

This decision is a disappointment not just for Exelon and Pepco but the District of Columbia business community as a whole. The merger would bring substantial and tangible benefits for the District of Columbia’s citizens and economy with no downside. The benefits for D.C. now in jeopardy include $33.75 million for customers and tens of million more in savings over the next 10 years, guaranteed levels of charitable contributions, guaranteed improvements in service reliability, faster restoration after major storms and new jobs in the District.
