  • CITY OF MESA TO BUILD MAJOR FACILITY FOR CUBS MINOR LEAGUE

         The city of Mesa has proposed building a new $24M stadium
    and training complex for the Cubs.  The teams spring training
    lease in Mesa expires after next year and the city wants to keep
    the team in the area.  The cost of the complex will be split
    between the city and the Maricopa County Stadium District.  Mesa
    Mayor Willie Wong said the city won't need a tax increase, but
    the "biggest hurdle" could be funds from the Stadium District
    through a county-wide surcharge on rental car contracts (ARIZONA
    REPUBLIC, 11/30).
