$5-6 million for a 1,500 ft. path? That seems like a lot.
So, what else can we do about that? How can you make him care?
Maybe I have the purpose of a vote misconstrued. It is a choice, "a formal indication of a choice between two or more candidates or courses of action" (Apple Dictionary).
I don't believe that there is an alternative, is there? It's either pass it, or don't. How would it be better if it didn't pass? I see the city officials saying, "well see, they don't want it passed, back to funneling cash elsewhere."
I apologize for coming off like a know-it-all. I don't know shit. Just a concerned bike rider, commuter, inhabitant of Atlanta.
I mean, if you don't vote for this, how is that going to show that we care for updating infrastructure? It may not be perfect, but at least its something in the right direction.
If you don't like it, why don't you run for office then?
Looks like the limo/taxi lobby (does that even exist?) has their hands jerking more than a few dicks at once!
Fuck taxis. Fuck limos. Uber and Lyft are the new generation. You got beat and that sucks.
It's not about proximity. It's about excitement. People from OTP were willing to drive to downtown because it's COOL and SPECIAL to be in a large city, watching the ATLANTA Braves. I can guarantee you that once the stadium is put up in the "center of their fanbase," said fanbase will take it for granted and attendance will not skyrocket as they so assume.
People who want to go to games will go to games. Does the move decrease the economical cost of attending for a large number of fair weather fans? Possibly yes. But there are way more factors to consider. Who knows what the fuck will happen: unknown traffic issues, pig headed stadium managers, raised ticket prices, crappy infrastructure surrounding, construction issues (the livable stadium concept sounds like a nice sell now doesn't it? Who knows if it'll actually make it to completion) could still push people away and we'd see no better attendance than at Turner.
What about the airport and the TSA? That seems like a big deal.
Hurr durr I'm the owner of a bar and I want everyone to know that I'm a good guy that covers up graffiti and I'm a city-philanthropist and so you should come to my place 'cause I'm a good guy.
Shut up. Just paint it over silently if you really care.
