Most Rhode Islanders living outside the Oak Hill neighborhood have never seen the site of the proposed new soccer stadium in Pawtucket.

Because right now it’s a pain in the neck to find and craning your neck to peek over the 95 North barrier at high speed is more than a little dangerous.

A soccer stadium..in Pawtucket..in a country that doesn't value the sport. This is another huge deal on the backs of taxpayers. With so many infrastructure needs, this is a bad deal no matter how you slice it.

Going to have to bookmark this article so I can send it back to you with an "I told you so". It won't save any of us any money but I'll at least have the satisfaction of being right when I'm paying higher taxes!

This is a bad deal for us taxpayers who will be subsidizing a soccer stadium that will only create low paying part time jobs. The other side of the river could have been developed as planned without the soccer stadium. With the deal Mc Kee squeezed in, the funds for 500 apartments has been gobbled up by the stadium. I can’t support this project.
