Published September 15, 1995
City, state and Tigers officials are said to have a deal for a new $230-250M Tiger Stadium in place and expect to make an announcement Wednesday, according to the DETROIT NEWS & FREE PRESS. Sources close to the negotiations said construction would begin in early '96, and the Tigers would be playing in the ballpark by '98. Funding for the stadium in the Fox Theatre district: $115M from the Tigers, $55M from revenue from Indian casino profits, $30M from the city, and $30-50M from private sources (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 9/14). PEOPLE'S COURT? Oakland County Exec L. Brooks Peterson said he will sue to keep the Lions from moving to Detroit. Brooks: "This is not a personal attack on Mayor Archer or the city of Detroit. This is business. This is a multi-million-dollar business, and I'll be damned if we're going to lose it" (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 9/14).
