BOSTON'S MEGAPLEX COMMISSION HEARS SITE REPORTS TODAY
Published May 10, 1995
The MA commission studying a possible megaplex is scheduled to hear from state officials and others who have spent "several" weeks reviewing each potential site for a combined convention center/stadium. State Rep. Kevin Fitzgerald said preliminary findings "didn't give us a push one way or the other (Phil Primack, BOSTON HERALD, 5/10). The commission is also launching "one more -- and possibly final -- drive to find enough private financing" for the facility. Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau President Patrick Moscaritolo: "It's clear that the commission needs to know whether the business community intends to suit up and play or sit it out." The commission is retaining three separate consultants for more than $250,000 total to help look into the financing (BOSTON HERALD, 5/9). For the first time, Senate President Billy Bulger said that building the proposed complex on Summer Street in South Boston "might be a suitable location after all." While Bulger is "warming" to the convention center and maybe even a baseball park, he "appeared to remain opposed to building a 70,000-seat domed stadium in South Boston" (Richard Kindleberger, BOSTON GLOBE, 5/9).
