Ok so the latest complaint about the west harbour location is that there will not be enough parking.
BUT there are 10,000 parking spots within the downtown core within a reasonable walk to the stadium site.
WHAT? People don't want to walk? Ok I get that. But maybe if we turned it into an event people will be less incline to complain about it.
Maybe we should mimick what the Seattle Sounders of MLS do:[url=http://www.soundersfc.com/Matchday/March-to-the-Match.aspx]http://www.soundersfc.com/Matchday/Marc ... Match.aspx[/url]
Think about it....Fans park in one of the many downtown parking lots (that, quite frankly, can use the business) and make their way to Central Park which is accross the street from Copps to the South and accross the street from the new stadium in the north. Central Park become Ticat central on game days, vendors can set up booth ect., it's the tailgatting experience we all want, but in a beatiful park. Then 60 minutes before the game, Ticat nation marches there way into lulu.com stadium singing the ticat fight song.
Downtown parking lots get extra business
Fans have to go through the downtown to get to the stadium and this is a good thing for our downtown
Fans get the chance to have a tailgaiting experience
Traffic is centred around the downtown core and not the north end neighberhood.
Love to hear everyone's thoughts on this...
