What To Do With the Houston Astrodome

Voters have rejected a plan to renovate the aging Houston Astrodome, but officials say the wrecking ball isn’t necessarily on its way any time soon.

Harris County commissioners say the fate of the world’s first air-conditioned domed stadium is in limbo after county voters Tuesday turned down a $217 million bond proposal that would have converted it into a convention and events center.

One commissioner, Steve Radack, says if demolition means spending $20 million to fill the hole left behind with dirt and a parking lot, he’d rather leave it standing. Another commissioner, j

Jack Morman, called demolition the only alternative now before them.

The board meets next week, but commissioners say it’s unlikely they will make a decision immediately.
