Monday Vote Could Be Critical For American Tobacco Project

Posted April 28, 2003 10:51 a.m. EDT

— A public hearing to address parts of the American Tobacco project will be held during a special meeting of the Durham City Council at 5 p.m. Monday.

The meeting could help make or break the major development project in downtown Durham.

The city and the county will hold votes Monday on spending public money on the project.

WRAL's parent company, Capitol Broadcasting, asked the local governments to build three parking decks on and around the property.

The city plans to spend almost $24 million. The county has committed $19.5 million.
