  1. I discussed creating such a topic with Mark and he agreed this was a good idea. There has been much talk on sports talk radio recently of a new stadium to replace Nissan Stadium when the lease with the Oilers/Titans expires in 12 years.The talk was spurred by the exit of the storied San Diego Chargers from San Diego this past week. Also, there is talk of a new Vanderbilt Stadium in the MLS topic as the partnership sounds likely. The MLS topic is seems to be an appropriate forum for this discussion as an application is made for a franchise. But, maybe such discussion can be moved here later as it becomes a construction/development issue. Also, other discussion can involve TSU's need for an on-campus stadium, the loss of auto racing, Municipal Auditorium, and any others that may pop up from time to time.
  2. Some thoughts from Ron Gobbell (who is overseeing Metro's redevelopment of the fairgrounds) concerning expansion of the racetrack: “SMI has asked and said that the turn one grandstands would be important to them to make this racetrack successful," Gobbell said. "Anything inside of that loop, we’ve been working with their design team about what do they need to make it work. We asked Hawkins Partners, if we put a grandstand on Turn 1, what would that mean?” Possible changes suggested for the area include moving the one-lane bridge over Brown’s Creek near Fair Park and potentially turning it into a two-lane bridge to make it more accessible to people with disabilities. “It’s a concept. We’re not saying that’s what’s going to happen,” Gobbell said. “That’s one way to accommodate the additional grandstand. If we get to that point, then we’ve got to talk to (Public Works). We’ve got to talk to Metro Water to say, ‘How does this design impact you?’ […] But I don’t want to imply that anybody is saying that’s definitely going to happen. It’s just a way to accommodate the request of SMI to get a grandstand on Turn 1.” More at Nashville Post here: https://www.nashvillepost.com/sports/sports-business/article/21145941/speedway-motorsports-fairgrounds-plan-includes-new-grandstand
