GIANTS AND WARRIORS MEET TO DISCUSS NEW ARENA
Published April 14, 1995
At the "urging" of San Francisco Mayor Frank Jordan, Giants officials met yesterday with new Warriors owner Chris Cohan and President Andy Dolich to discuss a possibile Mission Bay arena site. The Giants are "trying to convince" Cohan that the planned entertainment/sports complex would be the "best" site for a new Warriors arena. The Warriors claim, however, that, if they were to move to San Francisco, their "only choice" is Rincon Hill. Although specific plans of the Mission Bay plan are yet to be made public, the following points were made: Financing would come from revenues raised specifically by the project itself, with the city's percentage of parking and increased property taxes used to repay bonds; no new taxes will be proposed; and, the arena and stadium projects would be developed separately (Glenn Dickey, SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, 4/14).
