STREET GOES WITH HURRY UP OFFENSE ON PHILLY STADIUM DEAL
Published November 3, 2000
With two weeks to complete a stadium deal for the Eagles and Phillies, Philadelphia Mayor John Street has resumed his "urgent quest," and it appears that he has "abandoned hopes" of a Phillies ballpark at the 12th and Vine Street location near downtown and is "eyeing" a site in South Philadelphia, according to Dave Davies of the PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS. City Council President Anna Verna said that stadium bills will have to be ready by November 16 at "the latest" if Street wants them to be passed this year. While "intense technical work" is under way, talks between the city and the Eagles and Phillies "haven't resumed." But sources told Davies that "the focus is on South Philadelphia" (PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, 11/3).
