BROWARD COUNTY PITCHES MADE ON PLANS FOR NEW ARENA
Published January 5, 1996
The cities of Ft. Lauderdale and Sunrise, FL, made their most detailed pitches to date yesterday about which plan is best for a new arena for the Panthers and/or Heat, according to the Ft. Lauderdale SUN SENTINEL. Proposals were made at an unannounced, unadvertised meeting with Broward County's newly- hired financial advisor, Sam Katz of the Philadelphia-based Stafford Sports Ventures. Sunrise proposed a $166M project and, for the first time, promised a $10M windfall to the county. Ft. Lauderdale proposed a $190M complex that includes a parking garage, public transportation and urban redevelopment in eastern Broward County. Katz will analyze the proposals in an effort to help the county meet Panthers Owner Wayne Huizenga's February 1 (David Nitkin, Ft. Lauderdale SUN-SENTINEL, 1/5).
