Thank you Jason! A very good vision for the neighborhood.

I personally see synergies for a SMALL civic stadium with the community facilities already in the area of IWS. I also see the opportunity to reduce expenditures for a new stadium because of the infrastructure in existence. I am not looking to save money for the sake of it but to spend more at the West Harbour for development.

I personally have never really believed a stadium is the best development to spur West Harbour growth, I supported the WHS because of the HostCo money available for remediation. In light of the recent Burlington developments I now see an opportunity for a better plan for the West Harbour, more along the line of the Setting Sail recommendations. I'm not sure I can see the development opportunities you see a stadium will bring as opposed to other ideas.

I'd prefer to see the stadium stand where IWS stood not for sight lines and nostalgia but for the clean slate it gives us to turn around the brownfields of West Harbour.
