This is a right-leaning blog, reporting unsubstantiated hearsay, so take it with a grain of salt, but it would explain why the stadium project has stalled:

if you don't want to read it, it says the County's consultant's report says the stadium isn't financially viable, no bank will lend Silber the money to build the stadium and Silber is asking PW County to guarantee the loan.

update:  found this:

It only says that Silber is asking for a real estate tax waiver but notes that the County met to discuss the consultant report in closed session not subject to FOIA.
