CONSTRUCTION OF RAPTORS ARENA FACES HUGE SETBACK
Published September 1, 1995
The Raptors' arena plans "have hit a snag" that will probably delay the start of construction past the Province's October 1 deadline and force the team to play an extra year at the SkyDome, according to Craig Daniels of the TORONTO SUN. The delay is being caused by four parties, including the SkyDome, who said they will appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) the zoning approval granted by the city in July. OMB COO Diana Marci said "it was impossible" to tell whether a formal hearing would be required without all necessary information. If any party requires a hearing, it's "unlikely" the Raptors will have the foundation poured before October 1. Missing the deadline would force the team to pay the Province a $1M penalty (TORONTO SUN, 9/1).
