Texas Rangers future park
|Team: Texas Rangers||Style: retractable roof|

Voters in Arlington, Texas approved a financial plan that will fund half of a $1 billion retractable roof stadium. The plan calls for a half cent increase on sales tax, a 2% increase on hotel tax, 5% tax on car rentals, 10% admission tax to Rangers games and a $3 parking tax at games. This is an extension of the same plan used to build the NFL's Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium. In exchange, the Rangers are agreeing to a lease extension through 2053.
