Hopefully, the community and our county commissioners will do a better job with this project than with Coolray Stadium. The taxpayers are still on the financial hook for that white elephant project (http://tinyurl.com/Struggle-fill-Coolray). The developers and team walked away with the financial benefits and we got the bill. The commissioner's were not even savvy enough to maintain the naming rights, which could have garnered a large fee. That would have helped to offset our $19 million dollar dip into the county's reserve fund that the taxpayers could not afford (http://tinyurl.com/Gwinnett-Stadium-Eats-Money).

This time around due-diligence should include input and advice from someone other than the developers designing the project and making the money.
