MINNESOTA TO FORM SPORTS ADVISORY TASK FORCE
Published July 18, 1995
The Twin Cities' Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission is expected to announce the formation of an advisory task force on professional sports on Wednesday, according to Jay Weiner in this morning's Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE. The task force will reportedly hold meetings throughout this summer and fall to gather information about the health of the area's teams and willingness of other cities to "throw money at teams." The group will then give its recommendations to the MSFC by December 1. A sampling of issues to be discussed: should a new stadium for the Twins be built?; should the Metrodome be remodeled and naming rights be sold?; can the area support two, three or four major sports teams? The MSFC is expected to forward the task force's recommendations to the MN legislature later this year or early in '96 (Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE, 7/18).
