GIMME SHELTER: STADIUM NOTES
Published October 26, 1994
The UConn Senate voted 29-21 to reject a proposal to upgrade the school's football program to Division 1-A. Recently, there has been speculation that if the football program makes the upgrade, the state would build a stadium in Hartford (HARTFORD COURANT, 10/26)....Cleveland officials said that the city might take a "financial hit" because fewer people than expected are parking at the new city-financed Gateway garages. The officials said that the baseball strike has affected the parking (CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER, 10/25). ....When asked by the DETROIT NEWS if they would support public funding of a new Tiger Stadium, incumbent Governor John Engler (R-MI) and challenger Howard Wolpe (D) both said while they don't necessarily support the use of public dollars to build a stadium, they do believe the state could assist with infrastructure development -- such as building roads and acquiring land (DETROIT NEWS, 10/25).
