Greensboro stadium - Privately funded
Zebulon stadium - Funded by a Wake Co 1% tax on "prepared food", meaning it's something you can choose not to buy
Charlotte stadium - Mostly private funded
Winston Salem - Developer borrowed the money from the city to build it and is paying back 100%, with interest
These are just some of the stadiums in our own state where the taxpayers aren't forced to foot the entire bill. There are hundreds more around the country. Why is it that Wilmington is the one city where, according to the Braves people, private funding "just isn't done any more"? Sounds like they're just trying to fool us poor local yokels into believing something that just isn't true.
