Dayton SPARK and Larry "Scoop" Cooper invites GenD members to monthly Dayton SPARK meetings. PLEASE reply to scoop5076@aol.com NLT Friday 9 September for the following event presented by Michael Lause, Dayton Silverbacks General Manager, and Tom Chema, Gateway Consulting:

A Sports Complex for Dayton

$15 payable at the door

If you want to stay in touch with SPARK Dayton, then please ensure you're on Larry "Scoop" Cooper's email list. His address is scoop5076@aol.com. The facebook group is closing down.

In advance of the September meeting, here are several interesting articles on the topic aimed at getting ideas SPARK’ed and ready to bring to the table on September 13th.

1. This article is about the new sports arena in Toledo http://www.huntingtoncentertoledo.com/promoters -a good model for Dayton. Make sure to download the brochure and give it a look.

2. This article takes a realistic look at what a sports complex can do for a city . http://thesportdigest.com/archive/article/economic-impact-sports-facilities

3. A central location is all. This article is about Richfield Coliseum near Cleveland …http://inherentmirth.com/coliseum.shtml


So many questions regarding the upcoming SPARK topic on the feasibility of a new sports complex :

· Where is the best place to locate that sports complex- 1-75 at Edwin C. Moses, on the fairgrounds, elsewhere?

· What is the best way to finance the complex-bonds, private investment, etc?

· Who can and will use the sports complex?

· What is the right size for the complex?

· Is there a need for an arena?

· If it’s built who will come and from where; Cincinnati, etc.?

· What happens to existing facilities?

· Will Dayton support the complex?

· What benefits will the local neighborhood gain and what will the region as a whole get from this?

Please email Scoop at scoop5076@aol.com with any comments, questions or concerns about Dayton SPARK, or the upcoming meeting.
