CHICAGO POLL: BURBS, CITY AGREE -- NO MONEY FOR 'DA BEARS
Published May 11, 1995
A survey conducted for this week's CRAIN'S CHICAGO BUSINESS (302 city and suburban residents from April 27-30) shows that residents in both the city of Chicago and its suburbs agree that the state should not help pay for a new stadium for the Bears. Bears Owner Michael McCaskey has said he will ask the state to help him pay for a $285M stadium in the suburbs and has chosen two possible sites for a facility. 74% of city residents and 79% of suburban residents said no to the plan. Pollster Leo Shapiro blamed widesweeping opposition to the plan on the team's failure "to communicate the contribution they make to the community" (Judith Crown, CRAIN'S CHICAGO BUSINESS, 5/8-14 issue).
