ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton is remaining neutral on where a proposed Minnesota Vikings stadium could be built in the face of report suggesting more hurdles for a suburban plan.

Dayton said in a news release Wednesday that he could support a new football stadium in either Arden Hills or Minneapolis as long as the project’s financing is clearly defined and deemed acceptable.

A report from a government board outlines extensive costs for land acquisition and cleanup for the proposed Ramsey County plan to build it on a former munitions site in Arden Hills.

Dayton says he plans to meet in the next few days with Vikings owners, legislative leaders, local officials and others with a stake in the project.

The team’s Metrodome lease expires after this season.
