My concern for Plan B is is this the wisest choice for the use of the Rheem lands? Funding won't be as much for a 5000 seater and without any immediate major tenant, I have concerns with Plan B. The Setting Sail document should be revisited. That is potential prime land at Rheem and while Clark is correct I assume that any residential or light retail etc. there means more costly cleanup than capping it for a stadium or velodrome, maybe it is wise to hold onto to that before committing to a small stadium. This is a contentious issue no question though, tough one.

But I can live with a Plan B if that's what the city chooses to do if the IWS model doesn't work out. Again as long as an amateur sport legacy results from the Plan B. I don't know if with such a stadium you could just keep it open all the time for kids to play on or if would need to be a locked stadium and rented out?
