DALLAS SUBURB SAYS NO TO STARS, MAVS ARENA
Published January 23, 1995
Voters in Lewisville, TX, rejected a plan that would have enacted a half-cent sales tax to build an arena for the Stars and Mavericks if Dallas refuses to do so. Lewisville leaders said they would abandon efforts to lure the teams if the measure failed. Ronnie Carter, son of Mavericks owner Donald, said the team may look to Irving or Arlington as possible alternatives if negotiations with Dallas fail. Officials from both the Stars and Mavericks said recent discussions by Dallas City officials regarding a renovation of Reunion Arena are "fruitless."
