Civic Center Trustees Ask Snyder for More Details

The Cumberland County Civic Center's trustees are
questioning the feasibility of a developer's proposal to build an 8,000-seat
arena in Westbrook or Portland while turning the civic center into a convention
facility. Jason Snyder was supposed to meet with the civic center's board last
week to talk about his plan, but he asked for a postponement a few days
beforehand. In a letter to Snyder, Neal Pratt, chairman of the board, posed a
dozen questions that he said the trustees planned to ask at the meeting, about
the cost estimates for Snyder's arena and the financing for the project.
