My point relates to the potential for Property Tax and Sales Tax Revenue. Which over time benefits the Cities revenue stream and helps provide services the city needs and currently has no money to provide such.
Building in a prime area simply enhances that revenue stream. Picking some out of the way or blighted area only reduces the potential. I read in your previous posts that a rural site would be your choice. I could not disagree more. I would assure you that both the Braves and Mandalay would agree that their money will be on prime property. Your point about fair comparison is all wrong in that I had no purpose to offer a comparison. Wilmingtons potential is far greater. I merely state what Durhams local officials stated happened in the immediate area around their stadium and that I believe those same things could happen in Wilmington. Lets use PPD as an example. If cheap land was their goal then they could have found plenty of that. I can only assume they didn't want their brand represented in that manner.
