NEW BOSTON GARDEN CORP. KEEPS EYE ON MEGAPLEX PLANS
Published October 6, 1994
The Boston City Council "will wade into the megaplex muddle" today when it conducts a hearing on sites and other proposals for a new convention center that may or may not include fixed seating. The hearing is being held weeks before the Boston Redevelopment Authority is set to release its "long-awaited report on convention center sites." New Boston Garden Corp. President Larry Moulter said he intends to discuss the issue of "venue compatibility." Moulter said The Shawmut Center, built with private funds, should not have to compete with a publicly- financed facility. Moulter: "This is the first forum to help the public appreciate that these buildings should complement, not compete with, each other" (Phil Primack, BOSTON HERALD, 10/5). A new domed stadium is no longer the focus of the Megaplex plan.
