PEROT BUYS LAND NEAR ARENA SITE; STILL LOOKING FOR MORE
Published January 22, 1998
Mavs Owner Ross Perot Jr. has gained control of a "key tract of land" near the planned sports arena site, "leaving only a handful of small parcels in the area that could face city condemnation," according to Robert Ingrassia of the DALLAS MORNING NEWS. Perot's Hillwood Development Corp. signed a contract to buy 8.5 acres north of the arena site, and is "seeking about 7 additional acres for parking west of the arena." In addition, the official election results were released on Wednesday. The arena plan received 62,880 votes, while 61,238 voted against it (MORNING NEWS, 1/22).
