There are several problems with Raleigh’s new amphitheater. The city looks likely to open the amphitheater without a sponsor and Raleigh’s taxpayers will have to pay for part of the construction as a result. The competition for amphitheater’s and securing artists to perform in them has grown in the Triangle lately. People who have attended concerts in local amphitheaters often complain that they are too big, too plain, or too quiet. Area venues will have to work hard to fix these problems to fill the theaters with people and attract artists to the Triangle area.
The Bolton property has been labeled the most important property in Raleigh. The property has a chance to become a destination for people due to its location near Hillsborough and West Morgan streets on a primary route heading out of downtown. It is also located at the site of a proposed light-rail line making access easier. A call is made for the city to rezone the property to produce an excellent urban development on the property that will benefit the community and draw people to the area.
