CITY, MAVERICKS AGREE TO WORK FOR ARENA DEAL IN NEXT 30 DAYS
Published January 27, 1995
The City of Dallas and the Mavericks are working "toward striking a deal within 30 days" on a proposed new arena in downtown Dallas, according to this morning's FORT WORTH STAR- TELEGRAM. In discussions between both sides this week, the option of renovating 15-year-old Reunion Arena has been mentioned, according to Dallas Councilman Chris Luna. Mavericks owner Don Carter has said in the past he wants a new arena, with Reunion torn down so it doesn't compete with that facility. Mayor Pro Tem Domingo Garcia told the paper "he now favors renovation." Claiming that five of the 15 members on the council agree with him, Garcia says the teams "no longer have us over a barrel," and that Reunion could be renovated with 48 luxury boxes and added club seats for $20M (Thomas Korosec, FORT WORTH STAR- TELEGRAM, 1/27).
