The level of pollution is "key"

Both parcels have pro's and con's

Schoningers piece is bigger and someone already knows the degree of pollution.

Sawmill is further away from down town requiring Riverwalk to be extended much further and access to the Holmes bridge to go west into Brunswick might be problematic because it's so close.

But look at it this way. They could use Sawmill and turn around and say "no" to the public park as a money saving idea - use the excuse of it's too small. (Schoningers land is 8.5 acres, Sawmill is "almost" 8 acres).

Sawmill to me eliminates any thought of people walking anywhere. People are basically lazy. It also puts the game attendees closer to MLK and the Holmes bridge to get away from down town rather than go to down town.
Then there's "light pollution" mentioned in the NSS report. Picture you're driving over the bridge toward Wilmington and right at bridge level you have banks of outfield lights for the stadium. Light pollution BTW was a "negative" against putting the stadium along Eastwood road..........

Since I don't support taxpayer funding neither site is right with me.
I do however have another site picked out........
