Wait now one damn minute, they say we have to many rooms and a bunch of jerks in here a couple of days ago were all scream and cutting down those who said there wasn't any conventions coming to town. Looks like the TKC insiders were right and the haters as always were wrong.

^^^ sLIE doesn’t care about how many hotel rooms there are, he got himself and his developer buddies lots of free money and that’s all that matters, start calling your clowncil people and complain until this shit stops and if they don’t, start petitions to remove them from office. C’mon Democrat’s, practice what you preach.

We need bigger conventions to fill all these new hotel rooms!
Same song, 67th verse.

Clearly these hoteliers don't know about those 24 million visitors we see each year. Otherwise they'd be building even more capacity.

No it's not 24 million it was 25 million. Sly says so, it was the voices in his head that told him. Sly counted each and everyone of them.

Legalize recreational weed and prostitution to fill those rooms ! A tax the crap out of them both.

The glut of extra hotel rooms can be used to house the jail over flow.

And just why did we need a study? It should have been obvious from the start of construction. If you have hotels that aren't fully occupied and you build new hotels...uh

Did we really need a study to state the obvious?

Air bnb is taking away a lot of the market too. People would rather stay at places like that

To many Hotels and to much retail to much TIF and City Hall wonder why they won't have enough for Pensions . If TIFs pay for themselves why does City Hall have to bail out Power and Light ? Is TIF money about to be paid back on the Uptown TIF . Why TIF to up date a Plaza Hotel ? Will all businesses get TIF to up date their building ? a never ending give away to developers .

And in five years JoCo will have the same issue with vacant office space and vacant overpriced apartments.
