A request for Feld Entertainment to engage neighbors

May 8, 2014 

The new Feld Enterainment Studios facility in Palmetto.2014 Feld Entertainment

As neighbors just up the Manatee River, we read with great interest the informative account of the progress of Feld Entertainment as it develops its Palmetto property into a first-class facility (Bradenton Herald, April 21).

There is optimistic hope that the project will improve the local business climate and attract new tenants who can revitalize the papered-over storefronts.

Although we welcome the prestige that the new enterprise will most likely bring, we remain cautiously skeptical about its impact on an already overburdened road system and traffic management patterns on U.S. 301.

We respect the privacy of Feld Entertainment, but hope that the company will reach out to the local community with reassurance that additional crowds and vehicles will be mitigated as the entertainment center expands.
