COUNTY OFFICIAL OFFERS TAX BREAK TO COOKE'S STADIUM PLAN
Published December 14, 1994
An official of Anne Arundel County, MD, offered Redskins Owner Jack Kent Cooke a property tax break of more than $1M a year on its proposed stadium near Laurel. County Executive John Gary said he would "support the tax break" if the team revised its stadium plans in Laurel, MD, to meet "zoning concerns and show that the stadium will generate revenue for the county." Gary would propose assessing property taxes based on the current value of the land, not on what it would be if the 75,000 facility is constructed, allowing the team to pay for road construction and other improvements (Justin Blum, WASHINGTON POST, 12/14).
