Why not put the Race Track in DownTown At the old City Center site?? Since the Ciy doesn't want people downtown or so it appears with the increase in parking meter issue it would make sense. Just think how much the Division of parking could make from those who stop and watch a race.

I say leave the quietness of the Cooper area stay, Let the Birds and the People who visit the Cemetary have their moment of peace. Tell the Developers to STAY OUT.

To add to my prior comment. The noise would be like the saying When a Tree Falls in the Woods does anyone HEAR.

I think the question of scaring away the birds around the old Cooper Stadium is a moot point. I have been to many stock car races and have frequently seen one or more birds seemingly caught in the fence right next to the track. I've been concerned about them, but when the racing was over the birds just flew away like they were spectators. It seems they were watching the race, just like the people. It seems really wierd, but it appears that the birds like to watch racing too.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
