OAKLAND APPROVES $75M PLAN TO LURE BACK RAIDERS
Published May 11, 1995
The city of Oakland's planning commission has approved a $75M plan to make the Oakland Coliseum more "football-friendly," according to this morning's OAKLAND TRIBUNE. This announcement comes as city officials continue to negotiate with Raiders Owner Al Davis about the team's return to the Bay area. Davis reportedly "will not consider" moving the team back to Oakland without a "sign" that officials are serious about the stadium. Deputy City Manager Ezra Rapport: "We want to make sure there are no impediments to a successful conclusion of ongoing negotiations." While planners have signed off on the deal, the Oakland City Council and the Alameda County Board of Supervisors still must "agree" to sell bonds to finance the construction (Salladay & Ronningen, OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 5/11).
