In a new legal analysis, the Metro Council's attorney has raised legal concerns with a pair of resolutions that seek to hold a referendum in November on financing Nashville's proposed Major League Soccer stadium.

Mike Jameson, the council's legal counsel, has advised that the resolution be rewritten and a substitute be filed to address the issues.

The analysis, released Thursday, comes in response to two resolutions filed by At-large Councilman John Cooper, a top critic of the stadium project, and Budget and Finance Committee chairwoman Tanaka Vercher that seeks council approval to put the $275 million stadium project at the fairgrounds before voters on the Nov. 6 ballot.

The proposals head to the council on Tuesday, when the council is also voting on three critical ordinances to move the project forward. Close votes are expected.

The sponsors, in both resolutions, want the public to have the final say on all bond financing for the project — $225 million in revenue improvement bonds, which were approved last November contingent on future council action, and $50 million in general obligation bonds for fairgrounds upgrades and infrastructure work.

A Major League Soccer stadium proposed for Nashville's fairgrounds took a step forward in the Metro Council Tuesday night, but the project is still in jeopardy ahead of a final vote next month.

The council voted 24-7 to advance an ordinance on a second of three required readings to demolish existing buildings at the fairgrounds and to clear the way for the stadium, which would be used by the city's MLS expansion club awarded last year. Eight council members abstained from voting.

The ordinance would also institute a $1.75 ticket tax that would generate revenue to pay off the $275 million stadium project's debt.

Separately, the council voted 24-9, with six abstentions, to advance an ordinance to declare 10 acres of fairgrounds land surplus and enter into a 99-year ground lease for the private development of the land by Nashville's MLS ownership group led by billionaire businessman John Ingram. The club is planning a mixed-use of housing, retail, a hotel and other amenities aimed at improving the game-day experience.

But it sets up a third and final vote on these and two other ordinances related to the project when the bar gets tougher for passage. That's when the demolition ordinance needs 27 votes in the 40-member council for final approval. That means Ingram and Mayor David Briley's administraiton will need to find three more council members to vote for the ordinance for the project to move forward.

The Metro Council voted Tuesday to give final approval to three ordinances and a resolution needed for a much-debated $275 million stadium project at the Fairgrounds Nashville that includes a 10-acre mixed-use development with housing, retail and a hotel.

The key action was a 31-8 vote to demolish existing buildings, sheds and expo centers at the fairgrounds south of downtown.

The bill, which also enacts a $1.75 ticket tax at the stadium that will increase over time, faced a 27-vote threshold for passage, presenting a greater test than the three other bills, which needed just simple majorities.

Its passage was quickly followed by loud cheers from soccer fans wearing Nashville Soccer Club gear and jeers from some opponents.

"Giving it away!" one woman in the gallery yelled.

Other actions taken rezones the 10 acres to allow the mixed-used development; approves a 99-year ground lease between the city and the team for the private development; and authorizes $50 million in general obligation bonds to rebuild fairgrounds buildings and undertake infrastructure upgrades.

Each were approved with at least 30 votes of support.

It came after lengthy debate and after the council earlier in the night voted 25-12 to reject a resolution sponsored by At-large Councilman John Cooper, an outspoken stadium critic, that sought a November referendum to let the public decide the $50 million in general obligation bonds.

The Nashville Sports Authority's board of directors voted Thursday to hire a joint venture of two construction firm to build the city's new Major League Soccer stadium after a lucrative contract had been held up by protest from another bidder.

At the same meeting, a group of union members asked that the city use "high-road" subcontractors for the stadium construction to ensure worker safety, health insurance and other work standards.

The sports authority approved an agreement that expresses an intent to award the joint firm of Mortenson | Messer Construction Co. a construction manager contract valued at $167.5 million

The agreement is still contingent on successful negotiations between the city and the firm.

Nashville's Metro Council this month voted to finalize a $275 million stadium project at the city's fairgrounds.

They haven't started construction, yet; not even a groundbreaking photo-op.

Site work is expected to begin later this month at the fairgrounds for the construction of a new expo center to replace existing fairgrounds buildings targeted for demolition under the stadium plans.

Construction on the stadium isn't expected to begin until late in 2019.

Plaintiffs in a lawsuit seeking to stop a new Major League Soccer stadium approved for Nashville's fairgrounds on Wednesday filed an injunction asking a judge halt the construction of a new expo center on the property that would eliminate 3,500 parking spaces.

It comes as Metro broke ground Thursday afternoon on a new expo facility to replace older facilities that face demolition to make way for the 30,500-seat MLS stadium.

The motion for a temporary restraining order or injunctive relief, filed by the group Save Our Fairgrounds and signed by fairgrounds advocate Shane Smiley, argues that the closing of Walsh Road and its surrounding parking lot would "irreparably harm" the Nashville Flea Market.

"There is no way the flea market, a charter-protected existing uses, can survive with the loss of the much-needed 3,500 parking spaces Metro has closed as of Oct. 30, 2018," the motion reads.

Nashville Sports Authority finalizes $225M bond sale for new MLS stadium

The Nashville Sports Authority board finalized the sale of $225 million in revenue bonds Thursday to pay for a new Major League Soccer stadium at the city's fairgrounds, following through on action the Metro Council approved in September.

The $225 million in revenue bonds will go toward construction of the 30,500-seat stadium, with $50 million in general obligation bonds paying for infrastructure improvements around the site and a new expo center and other facilities at the fairgrounds.

Mayor David Briley pushed for approval the MLS stadium, which was first proposed by former Mayor Megan Barry.

The stadium, which Nashville's MLS expansion team owned by businessman John Ingram will lease from the city, is projected to open in 2021. The team is expected to begin play in Nissan Stadium in 2020.

Work on the stadium is projected to begin in the fall with the demolition of aging sheds and other buildings that will relocate to a new expo center that is under construction.

Project leaders told the sports authority that the stadium is still in the "schematic design phase." Only conceptual renderings have been released so far.

The Ingram-led ownership group will pay the city $9 million annually to help retire a portion of debt, with revenue collected from sales tax at the stadium and a user ticket tax designed to pay for the remaining debt obligation. The city's non-tax revenue from the Metro general fund would cover the rest if these revenue stream fall short.

The fate of Fairgrounds Nashville may soon be up to a judge. A group against the construction of the city’s Major League Soccer Stadium is filing a lawsuit on Friday.

They're trying to stop the Fairgrounds from being, in their words, “destroyed.”

New U.S. Rep. John Rose leads the Tennessee State Fair Association. He said the current plan to revamp the fairgrounds and build a professional soccer stadium doesn't leave room for the 160-year-old State Fair.

Rose said the state fair board has been "patient," and made "every effort possible to resolve its issues.” At times they thought progress was being made, but in reality, concerns haven't been addressed and to them, the production of the 2019 State Fair is in serious jeopardy.

The group is filing the lawsuit on the basis that the Metro Charter requires Metro to host the State Fair and other activities and the construction that is already underway threatens that.
