RESOLUTION NO. RS2002-1282
A resolution requesting the Mayor and the Nashville Sports Authority to consider the feasibility of constructing a retracting roof or other means to enclose the Nashville Coliseum and to add additional seating.
WHEREAS, Nashville potentially could qualify to host the National Football League Super Bowl if the Nashville Coliseum was an enclosed facility; and
WHEREAS, economic benefits to a community hosting the Super Bowl would greatly enhance Nashville; and
WHEREAS, Nashville, as a premier tourist destination, would have an additional event that would attract thousands of visitors to benefit the local hospitality industry; and
WHEREAS, an enclosed structure would remove weather concerns for such an event and would also enhance the facility as a site for the Music City Bowl.
