I support the Levitt Pavilion . . . but

I think it is a great idea, especially since there isn’t much else going on in Falls Park South/West. We have already spent millions on property that was supposed to be exploding in development by now. Problem? Dirty soil. So let’s use it for the benefit of the public. Great idea.

I do however question the fifty concerts a year (Item #24);

Friends of Levitt organizations are connected by their common purpose of providing a minimum of fifty (50) free performances and professional concerts annually for the benefit of the public, mutual support, national recognition, and the assistance they receive from the Foundation.

Not sure how they will accomplish this goal in such a short season, but I guess we will wait and see.

Notice the development in the background. Wishful thinking. Let’s get real, 15 events per spring and summer season. The rest of the year, finally a shelter for street people. Add some barrel fires and box shelters. A place for food truck distribution to replace the food bank relocated more than an unaffordable and handicap unfriendly bus ride across town. Finally, a place to display citizen fallout. Entertainment for bad Samaritan city officials and developer barons. They got tired of the stuffed endangered animal display at the zoo and it’s free.

I just want to know the definition of “professional concerts”.

Well, the question was asked when the Levitt peeps were here making their presentation and they promised touring nationally known professional acts. The city can also lease the space for local acts and music to, it just cannot conflict with Levitt’s calendar. I am still curious how they are going to knock out 50 professional free concerts in our short outdoor season. That is about 2.5 concerts per week.
