Mayor-elect Jim Kenney met with Temple University officials Thursday and told them they must address the worries of neighbors before he can endorse the school’s plan to build a football stadium on campus. “Temple asked for this meeting to explain the benefits of building their stadium,” Kenney’s spokeswoman, Lauren Hitt, said in a statement Thursday night. “The mayor-elect enjoyed meeting with the university’s representatives, and he appreciated them working with the city on this issue. He told the representatives at the conclusion of the meeting that he had concerns about Temple’s relationship with its surrounding neighborhoods, and that he would like to see them address some of those long-standing issues before he would reconsider his position on the project. “Temple president Neil Theobald and other officials met with Kenney. There was no indication of how the pace of their stadium planning might change. -David Sell, Inquirer, Read More
