Ice skating rinks
seen them come and go in the metro area since the 50's. they never last. Like MacArthur they just seem to fade away
You two are flirting with more district voting, Hockey? on the southside? are you serious? everyone knows Hockey is racist, Fayette will wind up with 20 districts if we go down the Hockey road.
All joking aside, There was an Ice Skating ring years ago It was even "solar powdered" Jimmy Carter thought it was the greatest thing on the Planet "Ice made from the sun" (and this was built BEFORE yankees started moving here, Shenandoah, even after all the yankees did move here couldn't remain viable. What's changed? same Yankee's are here, same demographics, worse congestion, and higher cost of operations,,WHY now all of a sudden would a Ice Skating Ring work on the southside??
A rink would be nice. But government cannot amenities for all. I'm quite sure that you may have invested a lot of time and money in a business plan to see if its feasible on the south side. If it does show potential, than what are you waiting for? It would be a great investment. Wouldnt it?
I grew up in the NE and enjoyed Friday night skating with the ladies and hockey inmy youth. I also know that my neighbor owned a rink in the 70's and early 80's and while it turned a profit for a number of years, the costs to maintain, forced him to sell. Hockey is a very expensive sport for parents and without a higher population on the south side, its not something I would consider as an investment here.
My comment wasn't related to what jobs an ice rink would create. I was making a determination on value. Furthermore, since the majority of companies you/we are trying to attract are moving from the mid-west in the northeast (ice hockey and figure skating) ice is an important amenity to have. Trust me, they are not looking for a pool with a bubble. BTW-Ice Hockey is the fastest growing sport in the country...just look at southern California in the last 5 years alone. We are way behind the curve...yet again.
I hear you about the tax digest. We need to do better and stop rezoning for more residential. We need commercial / industtrial business.
I didnt move here because there were a lot of retail or gas stations or traffic
JJ...you are correct. With the zero growth mentality that's all your ever going to get here...lower paying jobs than other areas. If Google wanted to move here we would find every reason not allow it to happen. They would interfere with our bubble. Their progressive thinking would ruin our city. However, we are 8 years behind on our city roads, but who cares...right? We are getting a gas station on hwy 54 because of this same mentality...the council voted down a beautiful retail development at that location in favor of a gas station. That's the mindset. Welcome to the bubble.
Lots of jobs for adults at ice-rinks?
Manager / Scheduler (2)
Assitant Bldg Engineer
Most of the other cities mentioned have ice-rinks...just say'n.
Can't wait to brag about this to all my friends.
Of course zippia is a top website with fantastic artticles.
Check out the one below which told me how much money my favorite Nintendo character would make in the real world.
Yea, when I moved to town I thought I would automatically get a check in the mail to be adjusted up the median household income level - I got gypped.
What an Utter misleading article, First of all show the data for the claimed 5.9% unemployement
(or am I supporsed to believe all of the 'My Husband is a Pilot' (F.O.) women work? )
As to the 91k income, probably right but how about mentioning those jobs are NORTH of PTC by at least 25 miles ? The Jobs IN ptc I'd wager avgerage $10/hr Part Time (starting)
Osweiler has the temperament of a younger Brady. Impressive...John Elway.
The Vikings have the payroll figured out ,, Let the other team pay for your QB,, Matt Ryan the best QB the Vikings never paid......
Imploding before our eyes. That new Mercedes stadium seats 71,000 fans. Good luck with filling that origami finger game monstrosity.
Mark Richt, has he been on big time tranquilizers for a while now? I hope he doesn't have a health problem, but that might explain his flame out.
Now to Tom Brady and the Pats hurting pup offense. This will be a big test tonight. Shouldn't be without Peyton Manning, but it will be with all the injuries. If the Pikes Peak Pats Fan Club out there has anything to say (listen for them), it will be another W tonight. Hope so.
If you want to see a funny daddy video, check out Tom Brady's Facebook page and watch Tom Turkey scare the baby powder out of his 2 year old daughter, Vivian, in the pile of raked leaves in their back yard.
You are so right. This is a slam dunk no. Rebuild within conforming now. As much as they know we would like them to stay there, we will not sacrifice our buffers. No need to anyway. These plans are very disappointing to say the least. They just don't want to admit that these 2 stores have totally different markets and will not compete. Just ask Zaxbys at both ends of the city on 54. Say no.
