Something that would have huge fan attendance caters to most of the world and alot of energy.
I agree. Would rather see a new MLS team in Charlotte than moving someone else's baseball team. That way you don't fight with everyone's allegiance to another team. MLS is a young, growing sports league that would fit Charlotte. There are thousands of soccer fans in the area that would support it and would be better than minor league baseball any day.

I believe that we can all agree that Charlotte could use more museums, performing arts, professional baseball, more comprehensive transit, and well planned land use in central city. Cities are born with all of these ammenities. They grow into them. If one hasn't been to town lately, look at the cranes. There are at least three major museums under construction, a major performing arts center in the Wichovia building, and new government centers. Charlotte is becoming more and more international every day. There are more international flights being planned for the city. Things are coming that will improve the city. It takes time, money, and red tape, but things are growing. It seems funny to me that the people that I meet that complain least and seem to appreciate the city more are those from NYC, Boston or other huge metro areas. Yea, they complain about their pizzas, etc., but they are glad to be here mostly and know that what they don't have now, they will eventually. Many feel pride in being part of a city that is growing instead of being part of a city that is already there. I personally would like to see the restaurant scene continue to improve. I would also like to see it become walkable/safe walking between Kings Road, Midtown, Southend, NoDa, Elizabeth, Dilworth, and Midwood. When it is possible to walk from any of these areas to the other, we have achieved something to be proud of. This will also be accomplished in the "not to far" future. And, it would be great if the Music venue across the tracks become successful.

I agree with you. Let's hope our wonderful city council does too.
