The infrastructure costs were in the capital budget spread out over 15-25 years. To build a stadium by 2014 would have accelerated those expenditures at the expense of areas of the city that have been waiting for road, sewer and sidewalk replacements in excess of 30 years. So no the costs were not tacked on to EM dishonestly. What was dishonest was trying to claim that those costs were already in the capital budget between now and 2014 and then trying to subtract them from the cost of building on a green field.

The Rheem site is already serviced by roads, sewers, water, electricity. In other words zero capital costs to service the site. You are trying to blow smoke up every one's arse.

How has the city closed York Blvd to through traffic? Its being converted to two way. The project is near completion. You can't do construction on roads without temporarily rendering them a pain in the ass to navigate. This fantasy that the TiCat kool aid drinkers like to spew that the WH site is inaccessible is simply that. Fantasy.
