STADIUM CONSTRUCTION BOOM LOOMING IN THE STEEL CITY?

Pittsburgh Mayor Tom Murphy said Tuesday he plans to form a committee to study options regarding a new baseball park and the city's other two sports facilities, the Civic Arena and Three Rivers Stadium, according to the PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE. "Faced with demands" from the Steelers and Pirates, ideas such as building a domed football stadium/convention center and a new stadium for the Pirates, or turning over Three Rivers to the Rooney family to run privately have all been discussed. Murphy called both ideas "premature" (Mark Belko, PITTSBURGH POST- GAZETTE, 10/11). NO CITY MONEY: Tom Barnes writes in the POST-GAZETTE that Murphy's in "wish-list" for $309M in capital spending unveiled this week before City Council, there are no mentions of a stadium (PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE, 10/10). Steelers President Dan Rooney said city officials need to make a decision "immediately" about Three Rivers. While he did not threaten to move, he did say, at a minimum, Three Rivers needs a $75M face-lift for the team to "compete financially" (Ed Bouchette, PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE, 10/10).
