  • CONCESSIONS MADE TO CAVALIERS INFLATED COSTS FOR GUND ARENA

         In an effort to wrap up a deal to bring the Cavaliers back
    to Cleveland, Mayor Michael White and Cuyahoga County
    Commissioner Timothy Hagan "gave in on major issues" that ended
    up "sending arena costs spiraling," according to the Cleveland
    PLAIN-DEALER.  White, Hagan and other public officials in the
    Gateway Economic Development Corp. are now facing questions
    "about their ability to successfully deal with another sports
    project on the horizon, the renovation of Cleveland Stadium"
    (Joel Rutchick, Timothy Heider & Stephen Koff, Cleveland PLAIN-
    DEALER, 7/9).

  • DC ARENA FACING HISTORICAL OBSTACLES; INCLUDING WATER SYSTEM

         In testimony before the DC Historic Preservation Review
    Board, city officials and consultants hired by the National
    Capital Planning Commission said they have unearthed unique
    remains of what could be a makeshift water system on the land
    slatd for Bullets/Caps Owner Abe Pollin's new arena, according to
    the WASHINGTON TIMES.  The discovery could make the site eligible
    for nomination to the National Historic Register which would
    hinder Pollin's efforts (Lorraine Woellert, WASHINGTON TIMES,
    7/11).  The DCHPRB does not have veto power over the area, but
    will make recommendations to the DC government and the federal
    National Capital Planning Commission (Maryann Haggerty,
    WASHINGTON POST, 7/11).
