MILE HIGH BACK IN THE STADIUM HUNT FOR DENVER OFFICIALS?

          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).
