(6.9) Apparently there is some interest in this topic. A forum to discuss the proposed stadium will be hosted by Rhode Island Public Radio (RIPR) Tuesday at the Metcalf Building at Brown. (The event will be live-streamed and taped for later airing on RIPR.)
Rhode Island Public Radio joins with Brown University’s Taubman Center for Public Policy to convene a panel of experts to address the proposed relocation of the Pawtucket Red Sox to a new stadium in downtown Providence. Sports Economist Victor Matheson, Urban Planning and Design Expert Jack Robbins and Jeff White of the Red Sox Foundation will join Rhode Island Public Radio’s Ian Donnis for a discussion of the possibilities and pitfalls of this project, the economics of baseball stadiums and the potential impact for Providence and Rhode Island.
You can comment on the event by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or use the twitter hashtag #PawSoxForum.
6pm to 8pm, Tuesday, June 9, Metcalf building, Thayer Street, live webcast here
