MASSACHUSETTS LEADERS SCHEDULE MEGAPLEX MEETING FOR MONDAY
Published January 19, 1995
MA state and Boston local officials will meet Monday in an effort to make a decision on whether to move forward with a convention center project, with or without a domed stadium as part of a megaplex. MA House Speaker Charles Flaherty organized the summit and "hopes the meeting will result in a decision to move the project forward": "The thrust of the meeting is just to get everyone to say: Are we going to do a megaplex? ... If so, these are the conditions we're going to do it under. If not, we'll do a convention center." Flaherty believes a breakthrough is possible because this is the first time "key elected leaders" will address the issue as a group (Richard Kindleberger, BOSTON GLOBE, 1/19). Representatives of the Patriots and Red Sox were not invited to the meeting. Flaherty: "I'm well aware of their needs and druthers" (Phil Primack, BOSTON HERALD, 1/19). GOODBYE FENWAY? Red Sox GM Dan Duquette said Wednesday his team must move into a new facility "within the next decade." Duquette told the Boston Chamber of Commerce that he'd like to build a facility similar to Camden Yards (Mike Shalin, BOSTON HERALD, 1/19).
