Unless of course this post was facetious.

As for anyone saying they'd rather potholes and roads be fixed with the money, we all would but unfortunately the return on your investment with roads is pretty bad generating a whopping 0 dollars. Sadly, that is a luxury because you end up dumping that money into essentially making your citizens happier. At least the arena development will create jobs and help the economy a little.

Just my opinion on the matter.
