Stephen Ross' New Plan For Sun Life Stadium Greeted By Mixed Reactions
Published March 12, 2014
SUPER-SIZED: Ross in a statement said, "We haven’t won a Super Bowl bid in Miami-Dade in far too long, and we know that with the stadium as an issue, we never will unless it is modernized. The Super Bowl Committee will have to decide if they want to compete for the next two Super Bowls so time is of the essence. It is time to move forward.” In Ft. Lauderdale, Craig Davis notes the Marlins, Heat and NHL Panthers, "as well as other franchises in the state, play in government-owned facilities, exempting them from paying property tax." Ross’ statement did "not address how the Miami-Dade School Board or the city of Miami Gardens would be compensated for lost tax revenue" (South Florida SUN-SENTINEL, 3/12).
