MILE HIGH BACK IN THE STADIUM HUNT FOR DENVER OFFICIALS?
Published March 19, 1997
Denver officials said they will take an "honest look" at redeveloping Mile High Stadium as an alternative to building a new Broncos facility, according to Alan Snel of the DENVER POST. Officials said the city will take three steps to evaluate Mile High's redevelopment potential. City officials will submit Mile High to a regional stadium site board; they will talk to Broncos officials to discuss the team's "exact needs" for a new facility; and they will hire a consultant to analyze the costs of rehabilitating Mile High. The study will cost "at least" $200,000. State Sen. Mike Coffman will also introduce a bill in the General Assembly that would give the Metropolitan Denver Football Stadium District Board the authority to remodel Mile High -- authority the stadium board "currently lacks." Broncos lobbyist Porter Wharton "questioned" whether a renovated Mile High would meet NFL stadium criteria and whether it could accommodate extensive maintenance costs outlined in a city engineering study (DENVER POST, 3/19).
