AlphaDog ..... You need to read the part about the *multi-level-parking-lot*
I did, I was referring to actually physically leaving the arena & area, not the parking itself. You have 1 major way out, and that is Glendale & the 406. That intersection is a logistical nightmare during the Christmas rush. That would force fans on to the side and back streets to exit and I guarantee that the residents who live around the pen would have something to say about the influx of traffic on their streets.

They'd all be too happy that they're within walking distance of great hockey games to complain As for the xmas rush - that's only about 2 weeks of the year. And as for the traffic jams - have you been to the Brampton rink?? That's got a HORRIBLE bottleneck. All traffic is basically pushed out onto a single 2-lane road (1 lane each way) with a traffic light right as you get onto it.

I figure, if you could get 40% of the traffic going towards the highway and Hartzell Road, 40% going the other way towards Glenridge, and maybe 20% going out the back way past the high schools (whatever road that is) it wouldn't be too bad. At least not near as bad as some of the other modern rinks. Although, I am in no way an expert on the other rinks, WDF could comment more on anyone else having traffic jams. I've only been to Brampton's rink (VERY bad) and Peterborough's rink (also very bad - stuck *right* at an intersection).

i also think 406 and hiway 20 is a good location for the arena centre to all the cities and lots of land for parking maybe they will have shuttle buses going to the game for people who do not own a car.

I dug up some info on the field surrounding Leons.

Go down to where it says The Commons.
So much for a possible arena location.
Take it for what you will.

Please Bill and Denise if your reading this prevent this from happening.
Put a new arena between St Catharines and The Falls and Alot of people will be happy.
Theres a reason that they are located in St. Catharines. Niagara Falls from what I've heard did not want a team so why would the Burkes try and put one there? there are plenty of places around here that would be great. and if this turns into new arena talk i might have to move it again lol

Not that it might remember the burkes have a 5 year deal and he is commited to owning a team.
If some one comes up with a 5000 seat arena be it one that gets some modification's to meet standards then just might wind up in the falls.
If no one comes up with a new arena then that's what is going to happen.
Like it or not he run's a business and at the end of the day if your not making money, then you have to rethink your option's.
Why do you think i have so many pictures of the Arena, it's because people want to see before they invest and want a plan of action also.
But who know's there could be exhibition games held there or maybe a regular season one who know's.
Just thought I would post some photo's for people who can't get there.
By the way 1 or 2 people in charge did not want a team, and they did not speak for the majority.
We are building a 36 million dollar 4 pad 2000 seat junior B complex.

So maybe 3 or 4 million to upgrade to a 5000 ohl grade multiuse facility.
From another post on the arena I said I had commitment of 150 days of rental plus percentage of sales.
All comes down to return on investment for the Burkes and for the new arena
