FEUD BETWEEN SKYDOME AND RAPTORS MAY BE NEARING AN END
Published October 4, 1995
A deal is "in the works" to satisfy SkyDome's objections to the Raptors Air Canada Centre arena project, according to the TORONTO STAR. SkyDome has complained of "inadequate" bus parking and pedestrian access at the Raptors' new facility and appealed the Ontario Municipal Board's approval. Dale Martin, a former City Councillor hired by the province to "help clear the way" for major developments, said, "We have a general agreement on what would work." Under the proposal, the province would "accept responsibility" for additional bus parking as needed, and the city would agree to install additional pedestrian connections. Martin: "If the bus parking and pedestrian access are addressed, I don't care who pays for it. My issues are resolved" (Paul Moloney, TORONTO STAR, 10/4).
