CLEVELAND LEGISLATOR CALLS FOR NEW STADIUM
Published March 17, 1995
Patrick Sweeney, a member of the Ohio Sports Facilities Task Force, says "if he had his druthers" he would replace Cleveland Stadium instead of renovating it. Sweeney, a Cleveland state Rep. says a new stadium would create more economic development than a renovated one. Sweeney pointed out the economic benefits that came from Gateway Economic Development Corp.'s Jacobs Field and Gund Arena. Cleveland's Mayor Michael White has recommended the stadium be renovated. It is estimated a new stadium would cost $220M, while a renovation job would only be $130M (Thomas Suddes, Cleveland PLAIN DEALER, 3/16).
