Bills' Stadium Panel Holds First Meeting, Says Process Will Take Months Or Even Years
Published April 2, 2014
A JOURNEY OF A THOUSAND MILES: In Buffalo, James Fink notes the New Stadium Working Group's meeting yesterday "was attended by 16 of the group's 20 members." Brandon said, "We had some very productive discussions. Basically, it was to educate everyone about past leases and stadium work and really set an agenda to move forward." He added, "All I can say at this point is that this [is] a process, a long process. To speculate beyond that is premature. We need a lot of facts and information to help us pave the road" (BIZJOURNALS.com, 4/2). Poloncarz said, "I don't want people to think we were sitting in here and made the determination, 'Yes, there's going to be a new stadium.' That's not the case" (AP, 4/1).
