Today city council is going to consider giving a $250,000 contract to yet another out of town company.
The contract would require the company to recommend a site for the proposed arena.
There are evidently economic advantages to us if the new arena is located within 1,000 feet of the current convention center.
The convention center is a pretty good sized piece of property. The graphic below shows an area with a radius of 1,000 feet from the red arrow. The arrow could be moved along the perimeter of the convention center if they need to move the circle.
For a lot less than $250,000 we could write a report for the city. In case they want to do what they did with the old city hall they might want to consider the following for destruction:
The ball park
The building the Times is located in
Union Plaza Parking Garage
The art museum
Hotel Paso Del Norte
Museum of History
Circles are not complicated.
We deserve better
