That is the real question. Developing the valuable riverfront and supporting downtown Wilmington is not being contested here.
Making it happen with taxpayer dollars is the issue.
Two ball stadiums in the nation, New York & L.A., do not cost the taxpayer. The remaining cities around the country pay an average of 4/5
of the stadium cost, with each year of never ending yearly costs... while the stadiums themselves, on the average, only come up with 1/5 of the cost! It can go to an even darker place. In St Louis, the taxpayers must now pay an additional 20 million to renovate their aging 20 year old stadium. The taxpayers do not have a choice at this junction.
I believe the taxpayers should be left out of the equation.
