Soccer Stadium

$25 million to buy land
$ 5 million in public infrastructure
totals $30 million bond issue by Metro Louisville
$50 million spent by Louisville City soccer club to build stadium
$185 to 200 million in private investment in the area for mixed use development (by whom? where? when?)
$ 14.5 million paid by the soccer club in rent over 20 years
Creates needed employment.
Transforms abandoned oil tank facility.,
Destroys no valued architectural treasure.
Could be a good investment for Louisville.
Should, however, replace planned parking with public transit.
