Now that we know the city wants $125M to build/improve schools; it is obvious we can't afford anything new. Leave the Pioneer Village alone and let private sector interests like Hostefest pay for an event center.

The debate seems to be Historical Society vs State Fair. I agree with the writer. We should all preserve history. The flood did destroy much of the history in the Pioneer Village. I don't know that a convention center is needed. I could see a large exhibition center that would hold the buildings in question above the road and parking lot that they want to build. They building would not be threatened by water. I am not sure the building is needed, but preserving the historical artifacts is needed.

The bigger issue is the fair board and hostefest want a new event center at the location of pioneer village. Risking a new building to flood is far worse than leaving buildings already there. Our city, county and state Gov't. seem to have no respect for flood potential. It is no wonder why we flood.
