Re; Requests for support of the Resolution supporting asking the NFTA the Greater Buffalo Sports and Entertainment Complex a Land option on the Outer Harbor Land Site.
                                                                    April 23, 2013
Greetings Members of the Erie County Legislature:
I’m writing you this letter asking you to support the resolution being put forward by Legislator Kevin Hardwick in favor of asking the NFTA to grant the Greater Buffalo Sports and Entertainment Complex a 9-12 month land option on the Outer Harbor land Site for the development of a world class Stadium complex which will include a 72,000 seat retractable roof stadium used year round for a variety of revenue producing events- including basketball football, soccer, and tennis. This facility will also put us in the running for a variety of events such as major NCAA tournaments, Professional Boxing, and even a Super Bowl!!!!
The Greater Buffalo Sports and Entertainment Complex has contracted the services of the world respected stadium and designer group HKS Inc. of Dallas, Texas who have already done preliminary site research and have determined that the Outer Harbor Land Site is one of the best sites for this type of development in the country.
This complex designed to include a new convention center, hotel, retail space, and a one of kind Sports Interactive Museum sponsored by the world- renowned Strong Museum of Rochester.
The most important factor is that the build-out of this project will produce more than 10,000 living wage jobs in an area starving for this type of private development. This project similarly like Indianapolis , Indiana produces thousands of permanent jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities after its completion.
Now the greatest part of this request is it costs the tax- payer nothing. The positives of the success of such an endeavor far out weigh the negatives. So please, I’m asking each one of you to give private enterprise and this project a chance?
In closing, history will judge us for how we stood for the uplift of our community and where we stood on the scale of integrity. Let’s stand together and support a project that changes the economic landscape of this region and produces opportunities for its many citizens that need it.
