  3. Larry Lucchino of the red sox's is in talks to join Boston2024 https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2015/04/23/red-sox-executive-talks-with-boston/03CN72tNkhex71iNHns6KI/story.html
  4. with whole referendum process there are a number of things going in the favor of Boston 2024. one is that this referendum vote will be happening next year during the presidential election, that will also give the committee time to change the concept to the final plan so all residence of the commonwealth know exactly what they are voting on. second it is well believed that there will also be a question about legalizing marijuana on the ballot. with both of those there should be a substantial voter turn out in November 2016 and thirdly most time when it comes to ballot question's the side that spends more has a much better chance of the results going there way and i do not foresee a scenario where members of the committee and other supporters of the Boston 2024 wont back it with large amounts of money. that is why Chris Dempsey wants a limit on the amount of money spent on the ballot question and i believe it was two million dollars
  5. I will be on a cruise of the Caribbean in mid janurary so my phone won't be unless someone to play the fees for being in the middle of the ocean My phone won't be on unless someone wants to pay the

  8. Bob Kraft and new england revolution are looking to build a soccer in a site next to the proposed Boston Olympic stadium site http://www.bostonglobe.com/business/2014/11/18/krafts-exploring-soccer-stadium-boston/s7p5krvDeH1J7UgjlEIFtM/story.html
  9. im not saying that they arent doing good things im just saying that the t has some big projects that wont be done before the end of 2017 and u forgot the glx (green line extension) beverly scott has said that the t needs to a new signal system if we want to be able to put on service that would be needed for the olympics also i think they should be doing more i have a feeling that the option for the red line cars will be. the t will purchase more then 30 dmus espically if the olympics r coming because dmus will basically be an olympic line for the most part when and if the olympics come to boston. lastly the green line cars will need to replaced by the time olympics would be coming
  10. Rik the new orange and red line trains wont even be arriving til 2018 west station 2020 dmus 2018-2020 and thats only large size projects they finish spending the money by the doesnt everything will be done by then
  11. i think that there will be a separate bond bill to cover the olympics on top of the 13bn coming
  12. I agree that 5bn and 4.5 are low numbers but the point of this initial info is to win public support and the usoc selection and after that they can revise the number higher
  13. i didnt say they would do that i wouldnt want them to do that just for the olympics we dont even know what the requirements for the 2024 olympics will be until 2020 agenda is done
  14. Boat actually does a have location with that much space and city/state owned and maintained its called franklin park Not boat Boston sorry I got auto corrected by my phone
  15. I also think that Boston also depend on what agenda 2020 comes up with
  16. Its a well known fact the Bob Kraft the owner the new england patriots and revolution has wanted to build a soccer stadium in Boston closer to his target audience. I think Boston will give kraft the landand give tax to cover some of the cost and kraft will build it
  17. I was just wondering I couldn't find anything online about a budget
  18. hey did la ever give a budget estimate
  19. no what im saying it isnt proper that leading members of this message think that this is just for show and la has won
  20. i have noticed that the people that say LA is going to be the us bid havent looked at the things massachusetts is doing and planning to do regardless of the Olympics coming to boston 1 green line extension 2 a long needed replacement of MBTA subway vehicles IE orange line and half of red line 3 south coast rail which would commuter extend service from the Boston area to the southeastern coast 4 expansions of south station 5 expansion of BCEC which is the Boston Convention and there's more stuff the state is spending 13 billion over 5 years on transit and infrastructure project that are long over due and as the head of the Boston has said the only state/city spending that's going to happened for the Olympics is stuff that's already in the pipeline or being planned
