Wilf Family Donates a Green Building in NY while Demanding Publicly Subsidized Sprawl in MN #wilfare

“That’s a nice touch. You’d think that a family like the Wilfs, who understands the value of building green when it’s in their own backyard, would also understand the value of building green when they’re proposing stadium plans in Minnesota.

Instead, the Wilf family wants to build a 21,000 car parking lot in a non-transit friendly suburb rather than refurbish our existing stadium or build a new stadium on our current transit system. One would have to be either downright stupid or extremely greedy to ignore the benefits of refurbishing an existing stadium or building on transit lines. In this case, I’m going to assume that greed is causing ignorance.”
