Minneapolis council wants Minneapolis as stadium site
The Minneapolis city council voted 11-1 yesterday to a approve a resolution proposing a downtown Minneapolis site near the Target Center for a new home for the Twins, while the Metrodome would be renovated for the Vikings. No financial terms were discussed, though, making the vote largely meaningless; a 1997 referendum prohibits the city from spending more than $10 million on stadiums without a public vote.
