DETROIT MAYOR COMES OUT WITH NEW PLAN FOR TIGER STADIUM
Published April 19, 1995
Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer says this year's version of a new Tiger Stadium will be "smaller, less costly and better defined than last year's." When it is unveiled before the end of May, the plan will feature a ballpark and a parking lot -- no bridges, shops or other sports venues as in previous plans. Archer said the city, state and team will share the costs, with the city paying for part of the infrastructure, defined as buying the land, putting in new roads and tearing down buildings on the site. Last June, talks on a stadium plan stalled after legislators complained that they were being asked to approve a plan without details on costs, design and financing. Archer would not divulge new financing details, but he did say the cost would be "dramatically less" than the $400M discussed last year. Legislative leaders caution any plan with state funding may face trouble (Tina Lam, DETROIT FREE PRESS, 4/19).
