Boosters—led by former Guilford County Commissioner Bruce Davis— make the big pitch for a downtown “multipurpose sports stadium.”

The High Point Convention and Visitors Bureau stadium task force is still nailing down important details—such as the cost, the financing and exact location. CVB president Tim Mabe said “the overriding goal of the stadium is to revitalize the core of High Point with a centerpiece that will create jobs and business development and make the city appealing to young people.”

Meanwhile Davis said he “can’t think of another project that has spurred so much excitement.” Reading the comments beneath the HPE write-up, I’m skeptical about that statement.
