Transcript New Stadium Approved Proposition One Passes By Narrow Margin BY: Casey Garrett Student Life After months of propaganda from city officials and sports celebrities, Proposition One was approved by Houston voters to build a new downtown baseball stadium. City officials and financial backers said the stadium would bring new businesses, restaurants and clubs to re-energize the downtown economy. Opponents stated the deal would strictly benefit stadium investors. Despite investors' claims that taxes would not be raised, Dan Patrick, General Manager of KSEV radio, said a lack of detailed financial plans would eventually leave the city footing the bill. In the heat of the battle, Astros owner Drayton McLane Jr. said he would move his team if the plans were not approved, which would have left Houston without major league football or baseball teams. In the end, a sharply divided city approved the measure by a slim margin of 51 to 49 percent, swayed by promises of a revitalized downtown and to keep the Astros in Houston. "It doesn't do anything negative. It will stimulate the surrounding neighborhood and bring more jobs to the city," said freshman architecture major and proponent Alan Creech. "The project will have to do a lot more than break even; they're going to have to sell a lot of t-shirts to pay for the new stadium," said Alan Scanio, sophomore music major who opposed the stadium and voted against it. Once promoted as the eighth wonder of the world, the Astrodome will be left with a vacancy once the Astros move to the new STADIUM. The massive STRUCTURE ON Houston's south side was the first domed stadium in the world.
