CINCINNATI SPORTS COMPLEX WOULD BE MOST EXPENSIVE EVER
Published February 28, 1996
Comparing Hamilton County's $544.2M proposal to build neighboring stadiums for the Bengals and Reds with other stadiums completed in the last 25 years, the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER's Richard Green concludes Cincinnati's would be the "most expensive sports complex ever built." The county's plan relies on $304.8M in taxpayer dollars, which would be obtained if voters approve a one half-cent sales tax increase March 19, $130.4M from the teams/private sources, and $109M from the state. The only other football-baseball expansive project, K.C.'s Harry S. Truman Sports Complex, was built for $43M in '72 (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 2/27).
