Miami Dolphins Stadium Deal Now Up to Voters

Posted: Apr. 17th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

The Sun Life Stadium, home of the Miami Dolphins, is looking to make some cool renovations, but though the Dolphins CEO and Miami Mayor Gimenez have agreed to the work, it's now up to the voters whether or not the stadium will be renovated. Chances are pretty good that the deal should go through, though, as the deal seems very favorable to the city and its citizens. They have to work fast to get this all signed into action, which might be the deal's only downfall.

The 11th hour deal between the Miami Dolphins and Miami Dade-County will go to the voters, but the referendum will be on a very condensed schedule.

The agreement was reached just before 10 p.m. Monday. Dolphins CEO Mike Dee tweeted the news along with a picture of him shaking hands with Gimenez. He called the deal an “unprecedented agreement for our community” and used the hashtag “#LetTheVotersDecide.”

Now that the deal has been struck between the two sides, a special Miami-Dade Commission meeting will be held Wednesday to approve the deal negotiated between Dee and Gimenez and set an election date within the next 30 days.
