Poll Results

The Harrison Square poll turned out a little differently then I expected:

32 votes for a Minor League Baseball Stadium
23 Votes for a Casino
6 votes for a Multi-Use Sports Facility
3 Votes for a Water Park
1 vote for an Aquarium
1 vote for an IMAX
11 Votes for none of the above

I am surprised that the multi-use sports facility did not get more votes...

I will be posting the next poll in a few minutes. It will be a fun poll, you may only vote in the next poll once...

I personally think that a combination of two or three of the ideas listed would be more beneficial than focusing soley on just one major aspect.

Putting all of our energy and focus into a hit or miss idea is too risky and could easily end up being a huge negative.

I would also like to add that I think that some of the housing around downtown should be fixed up to make the area look nicer and draw in more people.

I think Multi-Use Sports Facility may have been seen by too many people as a duplication of the Spiece Fieldhouse.

That was why I was kinda soft on it. I'm with Anon #1 about the eggs-in-one-basket thing.

I think that you should take CASINO out of the equation.

We will not get legalized gambling up in Fort Wayne.

In order to do so, the State would have to authorize it, and Senator David Long has expressed that he is against gambling. With this being his "home", there is no way the Senate would ever pass it.

Yeah, unfortunately a casino is not going to happen. It just isn't. But it is fun to think about it as a possibility.

I would also like to clarify that the first post is also by me, but I forgot to put my name on it.

As far as a multi-use facility goes, I don't think I'd be in favor of it for my own sake because I'm afraid I'd get screwed on the deal somehow if I rented it for volleyball leagues.

If I knew it would safe to use a downtown site then I think that would be great as an additional place to play if I really needed it.

To me Spiece is the best location in town... the true center of town in that you can get there pretty quick from anywhere. It's too bad we just can't move downtown up around there on the Seyferts side... especially if its the most visited industrial park in the U.S.A. as someone mentioned here before. Maybe that's why that mini-New York idea was shot down? lol

Mike, you better come up with another poll, this one went the wrong way on you again.

Pretty bad when the libertarian pollsters are going the other way on ya.

Its not necessarily the Libertarian posters... It is most likely the Harrison Square supporters who want to dispute that the average Wizards fan is a family with children...

Sam,
Your smuggness is really irritating.

That would actually be 45 votes NOT for the stadium/ballpark... assuming no double votes...

I would argue that anyone who wants to take my money to pay for someone else's entertainment is not a Libertarian. But it wouldn't be suprising if a few who self-identified as Libertarian who did not understand what the word meant supported the project.
