RAPTORS ARENA SITUATION STUCK IN BUREAUCRATIC LIMBO
Published March 13, 1996
Despite a February '96 goal to begin construction on the team's new arena, the Raptors have yet to apply for a building permit, according to the FINANCIAL POST. Jamie Wayne reports the team has not provided the Toronto Buildings and Inspection Dept. with the required C$1.2M in permit fees, nor the architectural plans for the facility. Toronto Solicitor Dennis Perlin: "Even if we proceed through our normal work schedule, we're now looking at May before all the agreements could be done -- unless somebody says 'step on the gas pedal'" (FINANCIAL POST, 3/12).
