CITY OF DETROIT, TIGERS CLOSE ON STADIUM DEAL
Published October 27, 1995
Detroit city officials and Tigers execs "are on the verge of a deal" for a new stadium, according to the DETROIT FREE PRESS. Tina Lam reports that the "focus" of their talks has been a downtown site west of Woodward Avenue, behind the Fox Theatre. An announcement of stadium details "had been expected" earlier this week, but was postponed "pending more talks." Lam reports that the city council, which must approve a stadium development plan by December 31, is scheduled to recess for the Christmas holidays December 8. Required public notices and hearings before the council can vote on the plan will take 40 days, meaning the stadium plan "must be put to the council this week to make the deadline" (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 10/26).
