SEAHAWKS SAY NOW IT'S OUR TURN
Published October 26, 1995
A task force has been set up in Seattle to "review the future of the Seahawks and the Kingdome," according to Angelo Bruscas in today's SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER. The Seahawks have detailed $150M in renovations they seek for the Kingdome, of which the team will pay $25M. Team officials have reportedly "put the county on notice" they would consider the Kingdome lease "broken" if the plan is not accepted. Bruscas reports that Seahawks officials note that a "more favorable terms" clause in their Kingdome lease binds the county to "make concessions" to the team if it changes or extends the Mariners lease "for any period beyond its expiration year of 1996." King County Exec Gary Locke: "It seems like this stadium issue will be with us for many years" (SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER, 10/26).
