Mitchell, Leeper, Cannon offer update
on Council talks with the Knights
April 10, 2012
The crowd wasn't ugly, but it was clear that a number of people at the Tuesday Forum on April 10 were not pining away for baseball to return to Charlotte. Much less pay the team owners to do so.
So City Council member James Mitchell had some fielding to do after his presentation about what City Council is talking about doing to lure Don Beaver's Charlotte Knights from Fort Mill.
In the videos below, Mitchell refers frequently to a paper copy of a staff report prepared for the Council's Economic Development Committee.
Dated April 4, 2012, the staff report outlines financial data discussed during Mitchell's presentation, and land parcels surrounding the stadium site that baseball officials expect to be developed. Click here for a PDF file of that document. For size reasons, the title page of the original document was omitted from the PDF.
The three videos capture the entire conversation about baseball, including the questions raised from the floor.
