I have seen first hand in numerous cities the economic benefit of bringing something like this to a downtown area. I lived in Greenville, SC when the brought the Greenville Drive to a downtown that at the time wouldn't be driven through even in the light of day. The field and promise of activity throughout the season spurred big business relocations, residential communities, retail and dining experiences, and more! I believe this would be a HUGE success and much needed boost to our downtown economy! During the best time of year it would give Wilmingtonians a reason to spend the day or evening downtown boosting retail sales, restaurant business, even real estate purchases! Sign me up for season tickets!
