Mike

get your facts straight.

The Durham facility was not built in a "prime" real estate area. Just the opposite. And the impact of the stadium and construction did lead to improved tax values in what had been a somewhat blighted area.

This proposal is for "prime" waterfront real estate. A far cry from the areas in Durham, Winston-Salem, and Greensboro.

In each of those cases, too, the facilities are located adjacent to a major traffic artery and do not add significant traffic to a congested downtown; and in Wilmington, it seems one of the streets leading to the proposed baseball site is always under construction of some type.

So Mike, how about comparing apples to apples or oranges to oranges. You failed to do that Mike.

If you want to make a fair comparison, Mike, why not point to areas like Creekwood or other run down portions of Wilmington. That would be a far more fair comparison
