State hesitates in donation

By Amanda York

Renovations for Rupp Arena
arid the Civic (‘eitter could slow be-
cause of difficulties in receiving
funding front the state. Lexington
Mayor Pant Miller said yesterday.

Miller said the state might be re-
luctant to provide the $30 iiiiliiott re
quested because of the uncertainty
surrounding the 17K basketball
team's future at Rupp Arena. The
state. she said. is “going to want to
see some letter of intent." Miller

“We've tnade it clear to them
that we'd like the university to make
a long-term commitment (to playing
in Ruppl." she said.

(1M. Newton. athletic director at


UK. said he doesn‘t see lfK's involve-
ment with Rupp Arena affecting
plans for the renovation.

“i can't imagine that." Newton
said. "Either they are going to get
their $311 iniliion for the convention
center or not."

Newton said the athletic depart-
ment supports the renovations and
will continue to play at Rtipp urttil
fttrtiter decisions have been tnade.

”We are very supportive of what
they are trying to do and we are very
supportive of their plans to renovate
Rupp. bttt it isittst too early to make
any definite commitments." Newton

Newton said Mayor Miller plans
to ask the state for $30 million and
that this money would be used en-
tirely for renovations to the (‘ivic

h Stut esp at the Uneivrt

“The mayor wants $45 million
for the project. $311 million for the
convention center aitd $15 tniiiion
for the Rtipp renovation.“ Newton

Newton said that once the de»
parttrtettt determines the renova-
tions $15 million will buy. they will
negotiate another lease.

“Once that is determined then
we will go from there and see. what
kind of renovations you can get for
$i5 million." Newton said.

Newton said l'K has a lease for
five more years with Rupp Arena
and that the university would honor

“Depending on what happens
with the renovation of Rupp." New»
ton said. “we will see about extend-
ing it (the lease)."
