I appreciate the amount of and thought that has gone into this analysis. I have been following the arena project for a long time and I have some grave concerns about this project. I am currently working with a group to organize a pleciscite on this project. Not because I am totally against the arena project if it is done in the right way, but more because I think that this is going to be done the Mayors way without proper consultation with the public. All the efforts to get community input have been engineered by the Katz group ie the online survey and therefore are biased. I would hope that people will contact me and support working on getting the taxpayers voice heard by council.
While the Quarters CRL will compete (to a certain extent) against the proposed Edmonton Arena District CRL, these areas will have different characteristics. I hope more details are revealed at the January 17 meeting.
