HOUSTON TASK FORCE TO RELEASE PLANS FOR $625M SPORTS PROJECT
Published May 20, 1996
A Houston task force is expected to unveil today a proposal for spending $625M on three facilities, including a new basketball arena, a baseball stadium with a retractable roof and refitting the Astrodome for football, according to John Williams of the HOUSTON CHRONICLE. Early response on the proposals varied from "cautious optimism to downright skepticism." While there are no exact financing details, the plan "suggests various sources of money from the private and public sector" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 5/19).
