PANTHERS TAKE ARENA PROPOSAL TO BROWARD COUNCIL
Published March 24, 1995
Aides to FL Panthers Owner Wayne Huizenga received "cautious support" for its arena proposal yesterday from the Broward County Tourist Development Council. Council members were "particularly sensitive" over Huizenga's proposed "bed tax," a county-wide tax on hotel and motel guests. Revenue from that tax would be a "crucial source" of funds for the project. Some board members said they would recommend an increase in that tax "under one condition only": If an arena is built close enough to the ocean that many hotels would benefit. The price for a new arena is estimated at $150-165M (Eric Conrad, Ft. Lauderdale SUN-SENTINEL, 3/24).
