NEW TAMPA ARENA MISSES DEADLINE -- NEW ONE SET
Published January 12, 1995
Officials from the Lightning are aiming to complete their complex arena deal in time for the '96 season, now that they have missed the deadline for '95. Team attorney Steve Pankau said that in order to meet the new deadline, the deal may need to be "wrapped up" by next month. Pankau: "Bonds to finance construction of the $110 million to $120 million arena will be sold in mid-February at the earliest. Waiting beyond then could jeopardize a '96 opening" (Kevin Walker, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 1/11). With an end to the NHL lockout, Lightning Governor David LeFevre was sure the arena will be built (Tom McEwen, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 1/12).
