FAN CLUB LAWSUIT RILES NEW STADIUM PROPONENTS IN TIGERTOWN
Published December 20, 1995
A lawsuit in opposing state funding of a new Tiger Stadium by the Tiger Stadium Fan Club could delay construction for a year, said James Tervo, Detroit's point man for economic development. In an interview with the DETROIT NEWS, Tervo said, "What's really frustrating to me is that the old Tiger Stadium Fan Club has nothing to win. The old Tiger Stadium is not going to be rehabbed." In response to arguments a new facility will not have economic impact, Tervo said, "If you go to Cleveland or Baltimore you understand that if you build a stadium so it blends into the city with limited parking, it is a tremendous boost to the community" (Lynn Waldsmith, DETROIT NEWS, 12/20).
