New Tiger
Stadium is
al most a
reaty
DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Ti-
gers moved another step closer to-
ward building a new stadium Monday
as the Detroit City Council voted 7-2
in favor of spending $40 million to
help pay for it.
"It's a proud day for the city of
Detroit," said Mayor Dennis Archer.
"Everybody came to the table in good
faith."
Archer said taxpayers benefit from
the plan because the city will get a
$235 million stadium with a $40 mil-
lion investment, and the plan does not
rely on a tax increase.
Stadium funding also would include
$55 million from the Michigan Stra-
tegic Fund and $145 million from
team owner Mike Ilitch. The city's
Downtown Development Authority
also would have to provide $250,000
a year for major repairs once the sta-
dium opens.
The Tigers and Archer agreed Oct.
27 on plans fora new downtown base-
ball stadium for the American League
club. The deal would commit the Ti-
gers to stay in Detroit until at least
2033.
The plan needed the City Council
to overturn a voter-approved 1992
ordinance that bans the use of city
money for a new stadium. The coun-
cil also had to vote on whether to use
the $40 million in Downtown Devel-
opment Authority bonds for the
project.
Council members Maryann
Mahaffey and Mel Ravitz voted no.
Ravitz said voters decided in 1992
that they did not want public money
spent for a stadium and he did not take
that lightly.
. But Councilwoman Brenda Scott
said the plan was more specific and
onough circumstances are different to
warrant building a stadium. She said
public opinion has shifted as well.
Tigers president John McHale said
the team has promised the city a facil-
ity to be proud of, and is determined
to be successful.
"We're proud to be part of the revi-
talization of Detroit," McHale said.
"This has been an issue that occupied
the time and talents of many, many
people. It's very rewarding that it's
come to a successful ... beginning."
The open-air, natural turf ballpark
would hold 42,000 people. It would
include private suites, club-level seat-
ing and picnic, concession and retail
areas. Construction is tentatively
scheduled to begin in April, with
completion targeted for April 1998.
The next phases of the project are
arranging financing and design and
development, McHale said.
He said spinoff business around the
stadium would depend on individual
entrepreneurs, but a spokesman for
the Tiger Stadium Fan Club said the
city should know by now that stadi-
ums do not create development.
"I'm disappointed that those who
are in charge of the public interest
have turned into corporate servants
rather than public servants," said
Frank Rashid.
He said the fan club will pursue

legal options and may attempt to bring
the question back before the voters.
Council members Gil Hill, Nicho-
las Hood Ill, Kay Everett, Clyde
Cleveland, Sheila Cockrel, Alberta
Tinsley-Williams and Scott voted for
the city expenditure.
