CT Governor John Rowland today will present an "ambitious" plan to "invigorate" downtown Hartford. The plan includes a convention center, "perhaps with an attached domed or outdoor stadium, representing a state investment of roughly" $150M (HARTFORD COURANT, 3/19)....In Denver, a new survey by Ciruli Associates polled 546 registered voters and found that 57% would vote for a stadium tax to help finance a new Broncos stadium, while 39% opposed the project (ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS, 3/19). The survey, conducted this month, is an increase from 53% who supported the tax before the Broncos won the Super Bowl, but a "slight decrease" from numbers immediately after the Super Bowl, which showed support "running closer" to 60% (DENVER POST, 3/19)....The Tampa Sports Authority (TSA) has raised parking at Houlihan's Stadium from $5 to $6. The first such increase in six years will take effect with the MLS Mutiny's opening game. TSA does not control parking prices for Buccaneers games, and the team "is expected to announce its prices in the near future" (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 3/19).
