Is there anyone here who couldn't come up with a better use for $50 million dollars than a stadium?

Even when Mr Smith (inevitably) shows up and suggests we just give it all back as a giant tax break, I'm gonna have to vote for it. It's a hundred bucks from every man, woman and child in the supercity.

My advice would be to start cleaning up brownfield sites and turning them over to community groups with long-term leases based on performance. As the price of oil rises, development is inevitably going to have to return to our inner cities. This opportunity will not last forever. We need parks (and not just boring 6-trees and a swingset parks), community gardens, sporting facilities for communities, housing, studio space, workshops and schools. And we need all of them more than we need stadiums.
