No just an opinion from a parent. A baseball field will still be going strong when a street is in need of resurfacing or sewer replacemnet like Celtics
Do you really think parks and baseball fields don't need to be rehabbed? Weren't there existing baseball fields there before the new ones were built? Hermits little league ...Robertsdale ...already had larger facilities ..... but they were redone because they had been ignored and had fallen apart. Parks that were upgraded when the first casino funds hit, have already had to be rebuilt again due to age. Do you have any ideas how old the sewers that were upgraded were? 40 ...50 ....60 years ... I can guarantee you that the ball fields and parks won't last nearly as long.
Streets have to be repaved .... but because of the lack of casino funds in many cases they haven't been rebuilt (with new curbs and (with a shout out to Higgs ...) "oriental lighting). They were grated down and repaved. There are many streets that still haven't had as much as that done.
I too am a parent .... guess what .... my daughter doesn't play baseball ..... her park days are long since past ..... what matters to me is whether I need a wheel alignment when I go down my street. What matters to me is the needed infrastructure to bring new business to the area.
