The 18-2 vote paves the way for the city to spend $7.5 million in a public-private partnership that will transform the baseball stadium into a music amphitheater.
The proposed Harbor Yard Amphitheater is scheduled to open 2019 and will be converted into a weather-proof venue hosting between 50 and 75 events annually.
Owner Joe Ladecky called for the city to reconsider the project, adding that “if the city accepts the proposal, the Sound Tigers will be forced to exercise all of their rights under the operating agreement.”
The city of Bridgeport will retain ownership of the site, which Mayor Joe Ganim said would be redeveloped in a $15 million project through a public/private partnership.
