Update on Memorial Stadium

The Fort Wayne News Sentinel reports that the study concerning the future of Memorial Stadium indicates that it will have limited use. I previously blogged about this study and was dumbfounded on why the city would have wasted the money. Of course the city can't support two stadiums - did we really need to pay $45K to an out-of-state consultant for that? On top of that, the study is essentially trying to find ways that the old stadium can compete with the proposed downtown stadium WHILE the city is actively negotiating with private investors involved in the downtown stadium deal.

Am I the only one that finds this incredibly - how should I put it - dumb? Not only does this study undermine the negotiations with the downtown developers, it also wastes more money than a lot of hard-working people make in a year. The city leaders involved in commissioning this study should be ashamed...
