Mayor-elect Jim Kenney and Temple University aren't wasting any time to get on the same page regarding the school's plans to construct a new football stadium on its North Philly campus.
The two parties will meet later this week, according to Kenney's camp. The mayor-elect disrupted the university's plans last week when he expressed opposition to the stadium's construction.
Temple's board of trustees was in session at the same time he made the comments, and was forced to postpone their plans for the stadium.
Kenney told the Business Journal: "If the Eagles were living up to their commitment to Philadelphia and our public university, just as the Steelers live up to their commitment to Pittsburgh by renting their stadium for free to Pitt's football team, there wouldn't be a need for a stadium at Temple University. There'd also be a winning team down at Lincoln Financial Field for a refreshing change."
