Soccer-stadium-of-the-month club

This week in the MLS stadium-go-round, it’s the Colorado Rapids‘ turn, announcing plans for a 20,000-seat soccer-only stadium to be built on undeveloped land in Commerce City. As for who will pay for it, the local papers either don’t know or don’t care: News reports so far have echoed the Rapids’ press release in stating that a $64 million bond issue will require “no tax increase to Commerce City residents,” without saying how the bonds would then be paid off – elfen magic, perhaps? Commerce City voters will be asked to approve the bond plan, whatever the heck it is, in a November referendum.
