The article reports that Miami-Dade County Commissioners voted 11 to 1 yesterday to approve an agreement with the city of Miami and the Florida Marlins to build a $420 million, largely bond-financed ballpark adjacent to the Orange Bowl near downtown Miami. The agreement outlines a plan of finance to be used in negotiating the final documents necessary to move ahead with the 38,000-seat stadium and parking facilities, which requires the purchase of 50 separate parcels of land. Miami-Dade ultimately would own the ballpark, while the city would own the parking facilities.
