ST. PETERSBURG WANTS A CLEAN MACHINE DURING FINAL FOUR
Published March 5, 1999
The St. Petersburg City Council on Thursday established a "so-called 'clean zone' around" Tropicana Field for the NCAA men's Final Four, according to Mary Jacoby of the ST. PETERSBURG TIMES. The area would ban tents, temporary signs and inflatable advertisements." The zoned parcel would be in effect from March 17-31, and would keep commercial "competitors of official Final Four corporate sponsors from selling their wares in the immediate area around Tropicana Field" (ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 3/5).
