RAVENS STADIUM ON SCHEDULE, BUT O'S/MSA BICKER OVER PARKING
Published April 17, 1997
MD officials say construction of the Ravens' new stadium is "on budget and on time" for the '98 season, according to Paul Valentine of the WASHINGTON POST. The stadium's financing plan has been "slightly altered," but MD Stadium Authority (MSA) Exec Dir Bruce Hoffman said that more public money will not be requested. Also "in the early stages of study" is an "urban entertainment center" between the stadiums which would include a hotel, movie theaters, restaurants and a sports museum. It would take some of the 4,000 parking spaces between the stadium and Oriole Park, but Hoffman said that "would be more than offset" by construction of a 2,000-car garage (WASHINGTON POST, 4/17). In Baltimore, Jon Morgan writes that the dispute over Orioles parking "has become the latest flash point in a rapidly deteriorating relationship" between the MSA and the Orioles. Morgan: "Each side accuses the other of dragging its feet and inconveniencing fans whose spaces were displaced by the construction of the Ravens' stadium. The rhetoric has become lively" (Baltimore SUN, 4/17).
