RED SOX'S CONCERNS COULD DELAY BOSTON CONVENTION CENTER
Published November 14, 1994
Reacting to a Friday BOSTON HERALD report that the Red Sox are "willing to invest" in a downtown convention center complex if a stadium is included, MA House Ways and Means Chair Thomas Finneran said the complex could be "delayed a year" to include a stadium. Finneran: "If we add a new baseball stadium, it's not clear it will fit on the sites reviewed by the [Boston Redevelopment Authority] and we may have to start all over again." Boston Mayor Tom Menino "stressed" that his administration "is committed to meeting" the Red Sox's needs, noting that there is room for a new Fenway Park on the proposed convention center site. But Menino added that the city and state are "losing important business and tax revenue" with every day that they delay (Meg Vaillancourt, BOSTON GLOBE, 11/12).
