The sky sox stadium idea represents the kind of vision we do not have but desperately need. The "obscure real estate" mentioned by one commenter is Colorado Springs LODO waiting and wanting to happen as soon as we develop some community courage and vision. Were there conservative naysayers 20 years ago in Denver talking about the ridiculous idea of developing DT Denver's run-down north end? Did an enlightened City do the right thing there? Did development of Denver's LODO create jobs and a vibrant city? Were there challenges to overcome that were worth overcoming? Yes, yes, yes, and yes.
