  • AROUND THE BELTWAY, PEOPLE SPEAK OUT AGAINST FACILITIES

         Before a "largely skeptical and sometimes raucous crowd" in
    MD last night, Redskins representatives described their plan for
    a new stadium to the Prince George's County Council.  More than
    350 residents showed up for the hearing on Owner Jack Kent
    Cooke's proposal to build a 78,000-seat stadium.  Cooke has asked
    the county to put the stadium proposal on a fast-track so that it
    can be completed in time for the '97 season (Neal & Lonhardt,
    WASHINGTON POST, 7/18).
         DC ARENA: A public hearing before the National Capital
    Planning Commission and officials from the DC Government
    addressed residents' concerns that the proposed MCI Center's
    closing of G Street will "erode" Washington's "unique baroque
    style."  Last week, Bullets/Capitals Owner Abe Pollin won
    approval from the Chinatown Steering Committee for the project
    after submitting a new design for the facility (WASHINGTON TIMES,
    7/18).

  • RAPTORS PROPOSAL IS TRULY A BARTER DEAL

         The Raptors are offering the City of Toronto tickets and use
    of their new arena in exchange for the land the arena will sit
    on.  Under the team's proposal, the land, estimated to be worth
    C$3.8-4.5M, would be exchanged for use of the building six days a
    year for 20 years and 450 tickets a year for 20 years.  The
    proposed package goes in front of the city council next week
    (TORONTO STAR, 7/18).
