As long as there's a vote, and only in pursuit of a Major League team. That's my opinion, anyway.

[QUOTE=JACKinBeantown;8527529]I also agree that public funds shouldn't be used for corporate profit. I didn't make that clear. My bad. I was only stating that while it may legally and therefore justifiably be his place to make such a statement (with which I happen to agree) there is also a conflict of interest. It's a gray area situation. But yes, I do agree with him... and you.


I understood. I just don't put as much importance on that as you. I mean, it could be a tactic to stoke public fears of the team moving out.

I'm pretty sure the City could pony up some incentives for the team owners to build a stadium DT. I'm guessing that no incentives have been proffered owes to the fact that there is no, political at least, will to do so.

As for the County, other than where it's at, the only place I can see that makes sense to relocate would be the ATT Center/Coliseum area.

UIW has plans to buy the AT&T building at Hiledebrand, and Broadway. Looking forward to seeing their plans:

The acquisition will expand the footprint of the UIW Broadway campus by 20 percent. During a recent campus master planning process, the university determined it was “land shy,” Evans said, to the extent of 30 percent less land and 20 percent less parking than other similar institutions. “On both of those fronts, it helps us immediately,” he told the Rivard Report in an interview.

More space for residence halls is needed to house students from outside the area, for example. “We will be undergoing a very thoughtful process and determining what will happen with the property, especially in light of what we know is possible when you look at development spaces like the Quarry and the Pearl,” Evans said. 'And to really take the time and do it right and do something transformational on top of something that already is of great impact.'"


I doubt the building will come down and be replaced, but perhaps an upgrade along the lines of CPS Energy. That building, in my opinion, is in the running for ugliest in San Antonio.

That’s funny, because I commented last week that that building is one of the few of its era that looks like it holds up. Proves the old adage, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The parking garage behind it also looks good (for a parking garage).
