Not the community itself, but the stadium proposal, that is, if this Star Tribune article is acurate. If the article is true, the VIkings have been told, and might be realizing, that Arden Hills might not be workable, as was stated in the article. And it just might be. Since when the Arden Hills site was first made public, the Vikings had been staunchly behind the site and none others. Then, in the past few weeks, perhaps month, after meeting with legislative leaders and the Gov., Several site's in Minneapolis seem to have come back into the fore front. Could the article in the Trib be correct and that the Vikings have been slowely guided back to Minneapolis?
Personally, I would love to see the Adren Hills site developed, but must agree, financialy, it would be very tough for the local leaders to sucure the money needed. However, it does boast the needed space for future expansion as well as on site parking and tailgating. Yet, I do admit, Minneapolis does boast nearby ammenities as well as less money being spent towards adding or rebuilding the local infustructure. Unless of course, the VIkings and Ramsey county decide to change the proposal to make it more appealing, as the article suggests.
While the odds are now, and probably have been all along, that the stadium will be built in Minneapolis, whether at the Dome site, Farmers market or near the Basillica, I do hope the Vikings do give a little, which at times they have before during this entire debate, while Minneaplis and state leaders also back off and help find a location that does allow for onsite parking/tailgating so both parties, and the fans, can enjoy things AT the stadium, not several blocks away.
