Domed stadium plans on hold for now

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Despite talks of growth in Birmingham, there has been one setback. Birmingham's proposed domed stadium is back on hold for now.

The city, under Mayor Larry Langford, had agreed to direct $8 million a year to the project. Mayor William Bell plans to terminate that agreement because of the city's finances and the economy.

Outgoing BJCC Executive Director Jack Fields says he hopes city leaders will take a new look at the project within the next five years.
