TO DOME OR NOT TO DOME? IN DENVER, THAT IS THE QUESTION
Published March 9, 1998
A retractable dome on a new Broncos stadium "would add between" $66M and $145M to the cost of the facility, "but could add more than" $19M a year to Denver's economy "by attracting more events," according to Peggy Lowe of the DENVER POST. Those numbers are from a "stadium issue paper" done by the Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce. A retractable dome was part of a State Senate-approved bill, which, if approved by the House, would be on the November 3 ballot. However, Senator Elsie Lacy, the bill's Senate sponsor, "has said she will attempt to separate the dome issue onto a separate ballot" from the stadium. CO Gov. Roy Romer said that he "is opposed to the dome." The Chamber's study showed a retractable roof facility could host events that included the Super Bowl, the Men's Final Four and the Big 12 Championship (Peggy Lowe, DENVER POST, 3/7).
