Your suggestion sounds good to me. "ACT IN HASTE, REPENT AT LEISURE".

I hope that if we do build one that we get something really smashing architecturally. That is one reason for all the publicity re the Durham PAC. We just don't have much in the way of interesting architecture in my opinion.

Ed, I believe the total site is actually close to twelve acres if you include the now empty and remediated "St James Homes" lot, and the maintenance facility across. The 7 acres represent the land currently owned by the redevelopment commission and currently included in the South Elm St redevelopment area.

Ed, "Why rush this thing onto the November ballot? Why not take the time to develop a great plan, line up some private funding, and launch the campaign when the economy is further into recovery?"

Because I was correct when I told you this plan was cooked up by developers, contractors and realtors whose businesses are designed to feed from the public trough. The pigs are hungry.

Why not East Greensboro?

Someone thinks the shorter time span will be the best opportunity for passage.

At the rate the Gang of Eight is careening along toward the approaching abyss, that may be a wise approach for supporters.

This strikes me as a logical guess.

It will be a high turnout election, and the next one they'll all be on the ballot.
