All good questions, that even supporters want answered. But a cultural arts master plan? No such thing needed...it would be a waste of money, and frankly, we aren't doing a very good job of following the plans we have - Downtown Consolidated Plan, Comprehensive Plan. We need to do better at using our current plans before we start hankering for another one. This coming from someone who has planned, and does plan, for a living.

Who wrote yesterday's editorial?

Something just doesn't seem right about this. I support a downtown venue but I get the feeling we are being deceived. There are just not enough details about this bond and there are a lot of questions that need to be answered.

Par for the course considering the long standing record of Greensboro's 50 year downtown development history. Greensboro would do well to consider alternatives to downtown and Matt Brown

A venue like that needs to have nice restaurants and entertainment venues nearby, something east Greensboro lacks. Beside I doubt the rich and elite would want to go east of downtown to see their shows. I hate to say it but its true.

"the rich and elite"

Isn't that who "needs" everyone else to pay for it?

The land is available to build nice restaurants and other venues adjacent to the spot I've picked out. Then the PAC would serve as a stimulus to many more people than the few who have real estate holdings and existing businesses downtown. It's big picture thinking and it could be done for half the cost of any downtown location.
