RENOVATE REUNION OR BUILD NEW? DALLAS REMAINS UNCERTAIN
Published February 17, 1995
Dallas City Council members "remain split" over whether to build a new arena for the Stars and Mavericks or renovate Reunion Arena. In a meeting on Wednesday, the council discussed the pros and cons of renovation and construction -- with some members saying that talk of renovation "is further slowing down negotiations." A "slight majority" favors building a "new state- of-the-art downtown facility," estimated at $141.1M. Renovation costs range from $22.3M to $117.8M (Sylvia Martinez, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 2/16). ARLINGTON SEEKS ARENA: A group organized by local business and civic leaders in Arlington, TX, is planning to collect 25,000 signatures by mid-March and present them to Mavs Owner Don Carter and Stars Owner Norm Green. The petition will ask the owners to "seriously consider Arlington for the arena site if efforts to strike a deal with the city of Dallas fail" (Karen Lincoln Michel, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 2/16).
