More on Snyder's Plans for Arena and Convention Center

Few Portland region business leaders or elected officials greeted with much
enthusiasm Jason Snyder's announcement in June that he would build a $60
million-plus arena and do a $30 million renovation of the Cumberland County
Civic Center. But the Westbrook developer maintains he is forming a sound
business plan that he hopes will convince state lawmakers, Cumberland County
officials and city officials in Portland and Westbrook that a new 8,000-seat
arena and a dedicated convention center in Portland will yield the best return
on investment. He will present his plan to the civic center board of trustees
next week.
