Decision 2006: Election Day’s Impact On Other Venues

Cotton Bowl To Receive
$30M In Funding For Overhaul
Measure A in Pasadena, California, which proposed letting the NFL “enter into a years-long contract with the Rose Bowl, appeared headed for defeat” in yesterday’s voting, as 75% of voters opposed the bill. Critics of the proposal said that it would “allow the NFL to destroy most of the historic stadium as part of a renovation and would allow too many events at the facility” (L.A. TIMES, 11/8).

COTTON BALL: Dallas residents approved $343.2M for local parks and recreation renovations, with $72.25M earmarked for Fair Park, $30M of which will go to an “overhaul” of the Cotton Bowl (AP, 11/8).

KEEP THE STATUS QUO: In St. Paul, Dave Orrick reports Anoka County (MN) Commissioners Dennis Berg and Dick Lang “handily won re-election” last night, beating opponents who had “positioned themselves as candidates for a change of course on the envisioned [Vikings] stadium.” Their wins “likely secure a majority on the County Board for those who enthusiastically support a stadium and, if needed, a tax increase to help fund it, without asking for voter permission first -– the same position the Vikings hold” (ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS, 11/8).
