Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer and Tigers officials yesterday announced a plan to ensure the inclusion of "minority, women, small and city-based businesses" in the construction of the new $235M ballpark in downtown Detroit, according to the DETROIT NEWS. Under the Michigan Minority Business Development Council plan, at least 20% of the construction work will be performed by minority businesses, with 5% done by women-owned businesses. In addition, "at least" 25% of the work will go to Detroit-based businesses (Basheda & Serju, DETROIT NEWS, 11/21).
