Open Letter To Orlando and Orange County Officials
I am a 33 year resident of Central Florida, mostly in Orange County and I am concerned about the possible demise of
Tinker Field is 100 years old this year, in most municipalities this would be celebrated with ceremonies, giving the field a new coat of paint and touting its long history and remembering all of the good times, but here in Orlando we have a different mind set, we would prefer to celebrate by giving a “perfectly healthy” part of our community a “FUNERAL”.
I am not going to bore you with the History at this time but it is long and varied.
I am asking that the BCC instruct the County Attorney file an injunction to stop all construction at the Citrus Bowl and Tinker Field until the plans are altered to preserve Tinker Field in its current state.
Also I am asking that the BCC withhold any County or Tourist Tax monies from the project until the plans have been altered assuring Tinker Field being a vital part of our Community for another 100 years.
