LIGHTNING REASSURES COMMISSIONERS ABOUT NEW ARENA
Published February 16, 1995
Lightning Governor David LeFevre "reassured" Hillsborough County commissioners yesterday that the grand opening of the new arena will be around October '96 -- not this fall as originally planned. The team's "inability to secure a construction loan" is being blamed for the delay. LeFevre later told the group that the team's Japanese owners "expect to choose a consortium of arena leaders" within ten days and break ground "within a month." He also said publicly for the first time that team owners "may finance the construction themselves, should all other options fail" (Francis Gilpin, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 2/16).
