RobF - The $1000 figure came 'out of the ether' from Fred, another commentator, see above. It was not in the original article, or ever suggested by Patrick Bermingham. And I agree, it's a ridiculous sum that very few would ever consider.

That said, if 800 people were willing to pay, say $25 for two hours on the bridge, (=$20,000), for 6 months for 4 Sundays per month,(6x4=24 Sundays, x $20,000) that could hypothetically raise $480,000. If half went to the event itself for security, transit, road closures etc, the other half could go to the Ecopark.

Win-win. No?

Thing is, like you, I have no idea what this IDEA would really cost to manifest. City would have to collaborate with Ecopark organizers to determine a 'working budget'.

Right now, as is, it all remains 'pie-in-the-sky' conjecture ... Yet, it does seem doable if there is enough political and resident interest to do it.
