Time will tell

If they truly have a plan to build a private stadium with private money, then congratulations and welcome. If the plan requires taxpayer money, don't go away mad, just go away... far far away.

The Wilmington public has made it clear that private investment in Wilmington is welcome. Any scheme requiring taxpayers to subsidize your business or taxpayers to assume the risk of your loans and financing is not.

If this is such a great idea with private financing, then just present it when it is ready. Announcing that you will have an announcement or planning to present a plan in 30 days raises rather than allays skepticism. Plus, if the project has secured private financing, why is it still a public private partnership? There is a whiff of bad shrimp at home plate.
