umm - "Art & Sole"

Not sure I have high expectations for that one just yet. I think it'll be closed within a year. That area of uptown is not ready for a clothing retailer yet IMO.

So a New Jersey Jughandle. I still don't see how that improves the traffic flow but it's better than what I originally thought.

Having grew up and lived there 14 years, one of the biggest things I've noticed is you have those who are broke and don't have that extra cash to spend, and those who are loaded but are too cheap to spend it and pretend like they don't have a pot to p*ss in or a window to throw it out.
It had more to do with the Luke Bryan concert on the same day in Raleigh was killing the gate. However ENC has to get over the "high" ticket prices. They are not high when compared to similar acts, they are normal and they are what is required if you want to see national acts come through here.

Now there is a mention of the costs of replacing the turf at Dowdy Ficklen being one of the deciding factors. The concert didn't sell well and I assume that ECU wasn't going to make enough from the concert to justify the cost of replacing turf right before the season starts.

This is a great example to use for the need of a nice outdoor performance/festival space.

Orlando built a bare bones 10k amphiltheater last year and it's been pretty popular so far. Something like this could work in Greenville/Pitt county. Maybe along 264 towards Washington or on the Northern Bypass.

I swear last year they said that the concert company paid for the turf to be replaced. I don't think ECU has to pay for that, at least last year they didn't.

It had other plans also to add more left turn lanes at Arlington and Charles or even throw a continuous flow intersection in also!...But they think quadrant roadways are awesome. The roundabouts are fine to me.

I think what they are trying to do is keep traffic flowing without having to wait too long to stop.

This project will frustrate people, (me also) I'm not sure what NCDOT was thinking...

The land adjacent to the fairgrounds would be pretty ideal I think

guess I stand corrected. Seems like a mutual cluster f***. Low ticket sales & the field replacement cost increase.

Its kind of interesting...April 21 seems like a much better time to have a stadium show in Greenville. Weather is not as hot, its AFTER the Spring football game. And you usually don't have to compete with Walnut Creek. Plus all of the students are on campus celebrating the end of the year (and before finals).

I think ECU would do well to have a Coliseum show the first couple of weeks into the school year and another over the winter with a big stadium show at the end of every spring.
