Per source at today's brief: asking 200 million from city. 250 million ticket tax
[b]Along with an NHL arena and a covered football stadium that will double as a public fieldhouse, the proposed CalgaryNEXT complex will include a FIFA-sized soccer field and 400 metre indoor track
The Flames organization will put up $200 million toward the $890 million project and will ask the city to contribute $200 million toward the fieldhouse portion, with another $240 million coming from a community revitalization tax and $250 million from a ticket tax.
The city already has plans to build a $200 million fieldhouse as part of the Foothills Athletic Park redevelopment, however the project is currently unfunded.
The proposed area will also need heavy environmental remediation before it can be developed as it was home to a Creosote Canada plant for several decades until the 1960s.
The cost of cleanup has been pegged anywhere from several hundred million to close to $1 billion.
Construction of the proposed CalgaryNEXT development likely won’t start for another three years, said a source.[/b]
