The Better Boise Coalition is seeking extra innings in its game of “bulid a bigger Boise ballpark.”
Every survey over the past few years predicts a homerun when it comes to building a new baseball park, but when it comes to financing they all strike out. The DAILY PAPER published a box score round up of the efforts which does a pretty nice job of explaining the various options.
Most of the options rely on taxpayers, but one will “sell” foreigners a a green card if they invest and create 10 jobs–perhaps this would include popcorn and peanut vendors.
The GUARDIAN finds it disturbing that “civic leaders” will be hosted at a meeting that will cost common citizens $45 to attend.
The details according to the STATESMAN:
The Better Boise Coalition will discuss next steps with civic leaders during a meeting Tuesday hosted by the Urban Land Institute, from 4 to 6:30 p.m. at the Owyhee Plaza Hotel, 1109 W. Main St.
Tickets are $30 for ULI members, $45 for nonmembers with discounts for public sector/nonprofit employees, students and “young leaders” under age 35. Registering at the event is an additional $5. For information, visit www.idaho.uli.org.
