interesting developments. The city is moving forward with $46M in renovations, adding seating upgrades and more importantly, parking improvements. More funding could be in store if Orlando is selected as a host city for the World Cup games.

I’m most excited about parking improvements. The lot around CWS is straight up embarrassing and gives no doubts about Orlando’s status as a major football city. Hopefully with these upgrades we can one day lure the NFL. Probably not, but this can’t hurt.

I can't read the article bc of the paywall. Are they basically paving all of the lots?

On another note these upgrades will only improve our chances in getting awarded the World Cup.  What can really clinch it for us is if we can nail down the deal with Virgin trains and Sunrail to provide service between MCO, international drive and its hotels, the theme parks, and the stadiums.

Since this train will provide transportation for tourists, our elected officials should push using tourist tax dollars as way to strengthen our hand in negotiations with Virgin trains. It makes sense to use some tourist tax dollars to help build the line towards Southwest Orlando. In essence it will be a public and private collaboration, which has served this city quite well. We are already using the tourist tax fund to improve our stadium and now we should use it to connect the stadium to the hotels.

The latest on the political football surrounding the Orange Center Blvd. affordable housing redo. 

Watch to see if opposition just evaporates after November’s election.

Did anybody ever find out what kind of parking upgrades they're planning on building?
