CITY OF MESA TO BUILD MAJOR FACILITY FOR CUBS MINOR LEAGUE
Published December 1, 1994
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).
