PANTHERS ARENA PICTURE CLEARING IN LAUDERDALE?
Published October 25, 1995
A two-cent hotel tax to raise money for a new arena in Ft. Lauderdale received support from all seven Broward County Commissioners yesterday, according to this morning's MIAMI HERALD. The HERALD's Tanfini & Rafinski report the "next hurdle" comes Thursday when Commissioner Suzanne Gunzburger will sound out hoteliers at a Tourist Development Council meeting. According to Dir Anne Martone, the Hotel Motel Association "opposes" the tax. In addition to support from innkeepers, Ft. Lauderdale City Manager George Hanbury said Panthers Owner Wayne Huizenga "also must commit" to a $15M, 30-year lease at the arena, which would be built on FL Dept of Transportation parking lots at Broward Boulevard and Interstate 95 (MIAMI HERALD, 10/24).
