Vikings Stadium Update: City Council Schedules April 24 Meeting

Minneapolis City Council member Gary Schiff announced a public hearing for April 24 to discuss the Minnesota Vikings' proposed new stadium, according to the Star Tribune.

Schiff is an opponent of plans to build a new stadium for the Vikings, which were approved by a Minnesota House committee last week.

According to the Star Tribune, the April 24 hearing

will include a key vote on whether the Council endorses redirecting convention center taxes to fund a stadium as a legislative priority.

The new stadium would cost an estimated $975 million, of which Minneapolis would contribute $150 million to help build and an additional $200 million to help operate.

Mayor R.T. Rybak, who supports building a new stadium, is holding the first of two Vikings stadium forums on Tuesday, April 10. The second will be on Wednesday, April 11.
