The relevant excerpt from the 135-page budget before Metro Council:
No community plans. No neighborhood hearings. No assurances that Nashville can afford it.
Metro Council has until June 7 to amend the capital budget. If you have concerns I encourage you to contact your council members before then.
UPDATE: Is the City Paper's Metro beat reporter, Joey Garrison, who has latched on to the possibility of a new ballpark voraciously and breathlessly in the past couple of years, downplaying the 2011-12 stadium line item via Twitter? Nothing to see here, move along, eh?
