Titans plan $25 million to upgrade stadium by 2012

NASHVILLE (AP) — The Tennessee Titans want to spend $25 million on new speakers, high-definition videoboards and elevators upgrading LP Field with most renovations completed by the start of the 2012 season.

The Titans announced their proposal Wednesday during a news conference at the publicly owned stadium. Though these are tough economic times, Don MacLachlan, executive vice president of administration and facilities, says the team put in a lot of work planning renovations that would improve the in-game experience for fans.

The plan must be approved by the Metro Davidson City Council and local sports authority. MacLachlan says the plan would be paid for by a $2 per ticket user fee put into place two years ago. The Titans also want to raise that fee to $3 to help pay for long-term improvements.
