CITY OF TORONTO SEEKS OUTSIDE NEGOTIATOR FOR RAPTORS DEAL
Published June 7, 1995
The City of Toronto "may bring in outside help to negotiate a deal for the Raptors' basketball stadium," according to this morning's TORONTO STAR. Yesterday's decision by the City Council, which also approved a list of "physical benefits" they want from the team and developers, comes amid criticism the city "has posted a poor record of winning community facilities in dealings with developers." The city is seeking a south entrance to Union Station, a galleria, two day-care centers, 35,000 square-feet of community service space, and money for school facilities on the neighborhood. The Council voted to give the staff "the flexibility to retain any negotiators they feel are needed to help finalize the complex deal," which the Raptors want completed by July (Paul Moloney, TORONTO STAR, 6/7).
