New Mexico: United’s stadium hanging by a thread

134 Published by admin 11 26,2022

According to initial plans, $32 million would come from United and $50 million from the issuance of bond by the city of Albuquerque. The second pillar of financing is controversial as it means that taxpayers would eventually have to pay the aforementioned amount.

Everything will be decided on November 2 during a public vote on the issue of bonds for the creation of the stadium. The latest poll, conducted on September 23-24, shows that as many as 59% of respondents are against any public spending to finance the construction. Out of almost 800 people surveyed, only 23% were in favour of stadium bonds.

The peace of mind of stadium supporters has also been undermined by street protests such as the one on October 13, when residents of Barelas and South Broadway loudly voiced their opposition.

They believe that the erecting of the facility will raise housing prices in the area, and there are more urgent needs in the city budget, such as public safety and affordable apartments.

Those looking to build the stadium say it can create 780 jobs and attract new businesses to Albuquerque. In addition, the arena is to be 100% owned by the city, thanks to which it will be able to serve local residents for many years.

City officials believe opponents’ fears are unfounded as the facility is expected to generate $384 million for the local economy within 30 years. This figure was confirmed in the recently presented feasibility study.

A few months ago, four sites were considered for the construction of a new venue, but lately the city of Albuquerque narrowed the potential sites down to two options. Both refer to the city centre near the Rail Yards. One, at Iron Avenue and Second Street. The other, on Broadway and Coal Avenue. The final decision will be made only after funding is obtained.

Preface

1. BEST EXPERIENCE

With the craze of sport games in the night, and more professional events are played at night, people desire for lighting to play at the very beginning so now people more concern about the quality of lighting, we believe that the glare produced by ordinary lamps can no longer meet the athletes’ pursuit of sensory experience. But now, thanks to developments in MECREE’s sports lighting technology, our precise control and anti-glare lighting makes it possible for sports men and women to perform at their best and enjoy the best sports experience.

2.DAMAGE FROM LIGHT POLLUTION

There is increasing concern for the problems created by unwanted light at night,such as light pollution and light trespass, result in various types of complaints. Particularly with increasing awareness of environmental problems of all types, it is important that lighting designers recognize the need to control problems related to the general subjects of “Light Pollution” and “Light Trespass.” So we have tried every effort to develope a newest optical technology to solve the problem.

What kind of light is used in stadiums?

Currently common traditional stadium lights model for some international stadiums as below:
MVF406/1800W, HNF003, MVF401, MVF403, MVF024, EF-2000, YOA56305, YOAX56400, 2kW: HQI-TS 2000WDS, 2kW: HQI-TS 1000WDS, MHN-SA 2KW 400V/956, MHN-SB/HO 2KW 400V/956, LPW2000M/D, LPW1000MB/L, LPP2000MHN-SA, LPP2000MHN-SB.
There is big problem that traditional lamps can not cannot meet the needs of 4K and 8K high-definition broadcast and huge energy consumption.
