Condemn and demolish EVERYTHING between current USF boundaries and I-275 Form a partnership between the Rays, USF and the City/County. Through the partnership develop a site which includes a new Rays Stadium (see link 1), a USF OCS and a multiuse complex which becomes the Sports capital of FL. Think along the lines of Spring Training teams, football academies, an expanded theme park presence, Shopping complexes, a Casino, Concert venues, Museums, an Aquarium(where you can swim in FL spring water with happy manatees), Hotels, Restaurants and the list goes on. The Braves are doing this in ATL after the wildly successful ST facility that they developed at Disney. With the expanded footprint, bring in development partners to upgrade area No of Fletcher and So of Fowler Develop Bay area rapid transit around this as one of the hubs. Expand USF state of the art medical facilities in newly available area. This is thinking big. It's what Cleveland did developing the Flats with Jacobs Field and the R & R Hall of Fame. It's what Baltimore did with Camden yards and the Inner Harbor. We haven't fallen nearly that far, but all the more reason to start now. Time to strike, while the Iron is hot.
