HUIZENGA LOOKING FOR SUPPORT FROM BUSINESS COMMUNITY
Published February 24, 1995
The Greater Ft. Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce has promised to help Panthers owner Wayne Huizenga "rally support for a 20,000 seat arena," according to Tracy Kolody in this morning's Ft. Lauderdale SUN-SENTINEL. In Broward County, Huizenga "wants to increase" the current 3% hotel tax to 5% "as the main way" to pay for the $100-150M arena. However the idea has met criticism from the county Tourist Development Council. Innkeepers in the county said they "would only go along with raising the bed tax if the county also puts a tax on restaurant meals, bars, attractions, transportation firms and parking lots that would benefit from an arena." Supporters say an arena "will put Broward on the big- league map, raising its profile in the battle for tourists" (Ft. Lauderdale SUN-SENTINEL, 2/24).
