DALLAS SUBURBS LINE UP FOR STARS, MAVERICKS
Published January 24, 1995
The Cities of Arlington and Irving, TX are ready to lure the Stars and Mavericks if arena talks break down, according to this morning's FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM. Both teams have been negotiating with the City of Dallas for the last ten months. Ronnie Carter, son of Mavs' owner Don Carter, said last week the team hopes to conclude negotiations with Dallas by March 1, if there is no agreement, the teams will "welcome" talks with Arlington and Irving. Saturday, Lewisville, TX, residents rejected an initiative to raise sales taxes to fund a new arena for both teams. Irving councilman Jack Spurlock says his city has locations and financing plans: "We are not here playing a game. We are ready, we want them and we have everything to offer" (Ave & Dotson, FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 1/23).
