L.A. ARENA DEVELOPERS SAY INITIATIVE AN ARENA KILLER
Published September 18, 1997
Developers of a new downtown L.A. arena "vowed Wednesday to abandon their plans" if a proposed initiative requiring popular votes on publicly subsidized pro sports facilities qualifies for the ballot, according to Ted Rohrlich of the L.A. TIMES. Rohrlich: "The statement represented a significant toughening of the developers' previous public position that they would probably abandon the project if the proposed initiative by Councilman Joel Wachs receives the 62,000 signatures it needs in the next four months to qualify for a spot on the ballot sometime next year. The developers also indicated that they are willing to wage a publicity campaign to dissuade voters from signing the councilman's petitions." Anschutz Corp. President Cannon Harvey: "We will certainly do what is necessary to make sure that Mr. Wachs' proposed initiative is well understood by the voters" (L.A. TIMES, 9/18).
