Why would who let a biased task force
create a feasibility study?
...The task force also will explore raising about $8 million to $10 million in private money to pay for the rest.
“This is about the soul of [the top 20% of income earners of] our community, about how we are going to feed it to grow and thrive as a 21st century community,” Community Foundation President Walker Sanders told 55 task force members...
“Many people have questioned why we are doing this in this economy,” Sanders added. “This is the right time. We have let this issue fester for way too long and let our differences in the past polarize us to do nothing.”
There are some who say stealing from a communities children
but we older people have waited too long to have immediate gratification
so taxing the future income of our kids is a good idea

...If [city council] decides that it is not feasible, it would explore replacing War Memorial Auditorium in the Greensboro Coliseum complex.
“As you look around this room, and you’ll see a lot of different interests,” Sanders said. “Those who are for a performing arts center, those who are against it. Those who have been for putting it downtown, those who have been for putting it at the War Memorial Auditorium complex ... This task force is bringing all those perspectives.”
...The group doesn’t have much time to finish its work. It will give its preliminary report to the city council May 15, so that the city council has enough time to take required steps to put it on the November ballot.
