A viewer emailed us earlier today suggesting we place a poll on our website in regards to the Florida Marlins stadium discussion. Two weeks ago we featured an interview with Norman Braman who is challenging the stadium and the Miami Mega-Plan. Last week we interviewed Florida Marlins' team president David Samson supporting the stadium.
In addition to being able to post your comments underneath each blog entry, you can now also vote.
For those of you unfamiliar with the project, the Miami Mega-Plan is a major works project that aims to do the following: build a new baseball stadium for the Florida Marlins, build an underground tunnel to the Port of Miami for easier truck access, build a light-rail streetcar, and create a museum park at Bicentennial.
We've been following the Mega-Plan on Issues for some time. If you’re interested in seeing some of our older segments on this topic, check out the links below. This information, along with segment descriptions, is available on our Previous Episodes page.
