quote wik re:Charlotte NC new MLS team...

The team will play at Bank of America Stadium, a 75,525-seat American football venue that is the home of the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League. A major renovation, to be partially funded by the city government, is planned to accommodate soccer at the stadium, including new locker rooms and a center tunnel. The team plans to only use the lower bowl and club sections of the stadium, capping capacity at around 40,000 seats

The owner of the Panthers will also be the owner of the Charlotte MLS team; therefore, the teams can share the auxiliary revenue. In Nashville, the Titans and Nashville SC have different ownership groups, which means the soccer team would be a secondary tenant in Nissan Stadium and not have any access to the auxiliary revenue (naming rights, parking, concessions, advertising, ect.), even during their own events.

Also, The city of Charlotte committed $110M to make BoA stadium MLS compliant, which is way more than Nashville is giving Nashville SC. And this is a stop gap measure; the owner of the Panthers/Charlotte MLS wants a new stadium within the decade.

There will be even less money for that new high school in Bellevue once Metro has to give millions to MLS and Nashville SC to settle a lawsuit.

That will be a convenient excuse metro can use when the school doesn't get built in the next ten years.

They think building a new school is expensive in 2020? Just wait and see what it will cost in 2025 or 2030.

And Rutherford County will have two or three more huge new high schools by then. Watch and see.

I think building a new school in Bellevue is a waste of money. Why not renovate the current Hillwood campus?

If Bellevue gets a new high school then I guess Hermitage/Old Hickory have an argument as to why they shouldn't have a school. The closest high school is on McGavock Pike close to Opry Mills in Donelson for both those areas. I think you could easily make the argument that Hermitage/Lakewood/Old Hickory area has far more children attending public school than Bellevue.

Old Hickory used to have it's own high school.

I already did.

And the current Hillwood has had as many band-aids slapped on it for years and now the original building is beyond hope. And it's in an area where no high school age kids live. And if there are a few, they already attend private school.

Good schools are a good investment in a city. That soccer field will do nothing to get teenagers ready for college level schoolwork or teaching them a trade.

The Wilson County side of the line is getting a really good new school. It opens in August.

It was a shame that DuPont High closed. As far as the Bellevue zone, it will be geographically enormous plus probably open zoned to kids who don't think highly of their closer zoned school.

But kids should not have to travel from almost Wilson County to McGavock or the far reaches of southwest Davidson County to practically almost White Bridge Road. Nashville can do better than that.
