STADIUM NOTES

     Members of Seattle's Parks, Public Grounds and Recreation
Committee yesterday toured the construction site of what will be
a renovated Seattle Center Coliseum next October.  The $73.4M
project that started in June of '94 is on budget and on time.
The new building will have an increased capacity created by a
lower playing floor; a new roof & scoreboard, luxury boxes, club
seating, a practice facility and ice-making capabilities.  The
city will receive revenue from the naming rights of the facility
(Bill Knight, SEATTLE POST-INTELLENGENCER, 2/9)....The Raptors
presented their plans for a new arena last night at a meeting
organized by the Toronto Historical Board.  Approximately 120
people were on hand to discuss the preservation of the historic
postal building that will be a part of the arena complex (Dan
Westell, Toronto GLOBE AND MAIL, 2/9)....The Superdome Commission
is soliciting bids for renovations to the Superdome and the
building of a new Saints Training Facility in Metarie, LA (New
Orleans TIMES-PICAYUNE, 2/8).
