College Events Center Study on the Street

    The report on the feasability of an events center/indoor turf field facility at Jefferson Community College is a documents that will be seen through the eyes of whomever is reading it.
     What I saw is how prescient the City Council was to reject the building of more ice as this report clearly comes down against the economics of it.
       The 99 page reports was commissioned by JCC as a means to justify planning for more facilities on the land now known as Whispering Pines, a soon-abandoned nursing home.
JCC Ponders Another Expansion

       There are interesting aspects of the report, including the sampling of those interviewed.
        I read it, and it's clear this is a college initiative as only the college would have the financial backing and program basis for even attempting a close to $50M project.

In the end how much will this "expansion" cost the county taxpayers ... let's hear from the legislators, shall we?

I note the study was presented to the representatives of the Jefferson Community College Foundationl; the Watertown Local Development Corp; and Jefferson County and Northern New York Community Foundation.

No county legislators were there? Unless, and I suspect, a few may serve on one of those outfits??? Which would not surprise me in the least bit.
