Demolition of Reunion Arena will start in April after the Dallas City Council approved a nearly $2.1 million contract to raze the shuttered facility. Inking a contract with Del Valle, Texas-based A & R Demolition is the final key decision by city officials in a yearlong process to close, and ultimately tear down, the 29-year-old arena. "When it's through, it'll be grass - a grassy knoll," said Ramon Miguez, assistant city manager. Reunion Arena had lost the city several million dollars since the newer, larger American Airlines Center opened in 2001, capturing much of the older facility's business. City officials say the arena will be torn down piece by piece instead of imploded. (Dallas Morning News)
