The Miami Dolphins brass is hard at work trying to come up with a revamped proposal for extensive renovations at Sun Life Stadium.

Dolphins CEO Tom Garfinkel told the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce Wednesday that the team is ironing out a new strategy to get stadium upgrades done, the Miami Herald reported. Garfinkel didn’t offer specifics during the chamber’s panel discussion, which focused on the South Florida sports industry. He did say a revised plan would not include major design changes to the $350 million project the team proposed last year.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross led a failed push for publicly funded stadium renovations last year. Despite getting support from Miami-Dade commissioners for $289 million over 30 years from a proposed county hotel bed tax increase, the Miami Dolphins owner could not get the Florida House of Representatives to even vote on the plan. The state had to give final approval to the bed tax hike and $90 million in state sales tax revenue. [Miami Herald]Eric Kalis
