SUPERDOME COMMISSION NAME COMPANIES TO OVERSEE NEW ARENA
Published November 17, 1994
The Superdome Commission voted yesterday to allow Integrated Logistical Support Inc. to oversee construction of an $84M basketball arena near the Superdome. The Commission also voted to have the company -- led by Mayor Marc Morial advisers' Robert Tucker and Anthony Mumphrey -- oversee work on $20.5M in improvements to the Dome. The commission named another company, Frederic Harris Inc., to oversee construction of a $20M minor- league ballpark and a $6M Saints training camp. The projects will be funded via state bond issues backed by a 4% hotel-motel tax in New Orleans (Bruce Eggler, New Orleans TIMES-PICAYUNE, 11/15).
