RELATED PROJECT: In Las Vegas, Taylor Bern reports UNLV has proposed a $60M renovation plan to "remodel or replace many fixtures” at the Thomas & Mack Center. The proposal “contains an overall update to many components that have helped run the building” since ‘83. UNLV Senior VP/Finance & Business Gerry Bomotti said while the renovations are not tied directly to the proposed UNLV Now project, “This was really part of that” (LAS VEGAS SUN, 5/2).
TIGHTENING THE PURSE STRINGS: Indiana state Sen. Michael Young said that a $2M luxury suite expansion at Lucas Oil Stadium and other potential Capital Improvement Board projects “helped spur state lawmakers to put a 10-year limit on two recent tax increases.” In Indianapolis, Jon Murray wrote the move is “evidence of some legislators’ long-standing frustration with the spending priorities of the CIB, which runs the city’s sports venues and convention center” (INDIANAPOLIS STAR, 4/29).
HISTORICAL HOLD-UP: ESPN.com’s Ivan Maisel reports work on the $66M College Football HOF in Atlanta “fell behind a couple of weeks early because work crews found the foundations of 19th-century dwellings beneath the surface of the land.” College Football HOF President & CEO John Stephenson said that workers also “found a layer of ash -- the residue left when Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman burned Atlanta during the Civil War” (ESPN.com, 5/2).
