FEUD BETWEEN SKYDOME AND RAPTORS MAY BE NEARING AN END

     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).
