TAMPA SPORTS AUTHORITY OPTS TO BUILD A NEW STADIUM
Published June 2, 1995
The Tampa Sports Authority (TSA) is moving forward with a plan to build a new $168.1M stadium for the Bucs, according to the ST. PETERSBURG TIMES. Faced with the choice of renovating, rebuilding, or building a new stadium, the TSA made its decision based on the ability of the architects to cut the price of a new stadium from $210M to $168M. The TSA's financing committee is hoping the bulk of the financing will come from PSLs (ST. PETE TIMES, 6/2). Planners hope to raise up to two-thirds of the costs through private contributions and persuade taxpayers and lawmakers to pay the rest (Jim Kenyon, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 6/1).
