On December 19, 2017, Greensboro Coliseum Director Matt Brown, the City's highest paid employee, told City Council the Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts (STPAC) would be paid for in part by patrons paying $18 a piece for 330 VIP parking spaces 150 times per year.
The same math was sent by Brown to Kathy Manning, Co-Chair of the Development/Marketing Task Force and Chief Fundraiser for the Center, and Walker Sanders, president of The Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro.
Manning's husband Randall Kaplan, who served on the STPACs Economic Impact/Feasibility Task Force, is set to profit from the venture with a more than $30 million taxpayer funded parking deck under a new hotel down the street.
There were 488 free on street parking spots within 1,200 feet of the site, not counting the VF and the Marriott parking across the street, and another couple thousand in two more parking decks on the way.
The Bellemeade Deck across the street has 1,276 spaces
DPAC charges $5 per car in a similarly proximate deck.
Manning and Walker among others purposefully misled our community and have conspired against Greensboro's taxpayers for personal profit.
City Council voted to for this project knowing this information or should have, and/or willfully ignored data, violating their fiduciary duties to Greensboro's taxpayers, and should be removed from office.
