CCA is excited to inaugurate its Concord-focused podcast: Listen Up Concord. We’re all about listening, and about making sure the voices of Concord residents get heard. In this episode, CCA tackles the proposed downtown stadium and asks, “Who is the City Council listening to?”
Between July 18 and August 22, 86% of 461 Concord residents polled by CCA opposed the building of a soccer stadium in downtown Concord.
Do stadiums generate a net economic benefit to the cities where they are built? None that professional economists can identify. Does that matter to Concord? It should.
