My presentation is on the Hall of Fame Village project. I plan to discuss the impact of the project on the community and on the Hall's mission. I will be examining both the historical impact and the economic impact on the neighborhood, the city, county and region. I plan to speak with representatives from the Hall of Fame, local government and civic agencies, as well as neighborhood residents (if possible) to determine their feeling, opinions and outlook on the project. I will be examining the funding and potential costs to taxpayers, as well as the projected financial and economic benefits to the community. My presentation will include an individual oral report, as well as a visual poster/newspaper project. I plan to include renderings of the Hall of Fame Village, as well as photos of the current progress and possibly graphics of the data behind the Hall of Fame Village project.
