Local group releases new poll regarding Hines-Rays Stadium and Historic Gas Plant Redevelopment Plan

One group gathered on Thursday, claiming the Hines-Rays stadium deal is not a good deal for tax-payers.  When it comes to the redevelopment of the Rays Stadium and the Historic Gas Plant District, the current plan includes $50 million for what developers are calling intentional equity, including 1,250 affordable housing units, employment opportunities, and reduced rent for minority-owned businesses. Plus, funding for the Woodson African American Museum.  If these goals aren't achieved, Hines-Rays will have to pay the city penalties.
