Real Salt Lake ready to announce stadium deal?

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, Real Salt Lake, "... could decide by month's end where to build a $60 million to $65 million Major League Soccer stadium, which would be publicly and privately financed."

The article says that Sandy appears to be in the lead, but that Real is still looking at other options. Getting this stadium built will be great for Utah and MLS, but, like all stadiums, I don't like to see a lot of taxpayer money going into it. I know very little about Salt Lake and even less about their local politics, so I don't know what the exact needs of the area are. I just hope this project will allow for a growth in the community as well as a growth for soccer.
