I thought the PL arena will mainly be a rodeo arena and bbq cookoffs area ?
someone remind me what caterpillar (home of 11/hr jobs) gave the city of victoria and county in exchange for their tax break ?
1 million will build a newer, slightly fancier version of Victoria's Riverside Convention Center. For $1 million you'll get a metal building with a roof and not much else. It certainly won't be able to hold thousands of people and will not have the quality acoustics you need for a concert.
People of Calhoun County got duped. The tax abatement will be worth much more than that and the 20 full time jobs created will add to the property tax rolls in Victoria as that is likely where most of the people hired will end up living.
What type of arena can you get for 1 million dollars? Hold out for the 10 million dollar arena.
For the same reason that Cuero will get our waterpark!
Because Victoria cant agree that a multi-purpose arena is needed so we just give the abatements away.
And Victoria gets left in the dust....AGAIN.
Why can't Victoria work out some sort of deal like this with Caterpillar or one of the Industrial Plants we have?????????
Lol. Now this is how to give an abatement. Almost like a trade. You want an abatement? Build an arena for the community.
