STADIUM NOTES: VENUES DON'T ENSURE VITAL ECONOMY
Published October 4, 1995
Cities that have recently built stadiums have learned it takes time for them to "have an impact" on their local economies, according to a story in the Nashville TENNESSEAN. Bill Carey writes cities are also finding football stadiums don't have as much of an impact as baseball parks or arenas, and "sports arenas are no substitute for a healthy economy" (TENNESSEAN, 9/30)....San Francisco Mayoral Candidate Willie Brown joked last week about the $500,000 fee 3Com paid for the naming rights to Candlestick Park. Brown: "If I had known the city was prepared to settle so cheaply, I would have bought it (naming rights) for my campaign, Willie Brown Park!" (John King, S.F. CHRONICLE, 10/3).
