Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation and others as part of Citizens for a Better Plan are raising concerns about the proposed plan to build an amphitheater on the wastebeds of the west shore of Onondaga Lake. The August 26 meeting is for members of the public to comment on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement. People can also make written comments until September 5. Some questions we are raising:
- Does the project make economic sense? Where is the business plan?
- How will the excess noise and heavy traffic from regular concerts be managed?
- How will visitors to the amphitheater be protected from contamination on site?
- Is an amphitheater the best use for this site?
