On The Packers Expansion Plans In And Around Lambeau

I'm not sure whether it's a slow NFL news time, or if there really is something substantive going on, but there was another article over the weekend on the Green Bay Packers development plans around Lambeau Field. The Packers have been buying land around Lambeau for years in case they want to build some sort of entertainment district around the stadium. I'm not sure whether this is good or bad because the Packers are still talking long-term and nothing is imminent. This may or may not be part of the plans they have to expand the stadium itself. From the Press-Gazette:

Among projects under consideration are a multi-use baseball stadium that could be located in one of several places, a new indoor practice facility that most likely would be in the Lambeau Field parking lot and a hotel that also could be in the parking lot.

While this wouldn't be the same as the Power and Light district in Kansas City, which is "hemorrhaging taxpayer money", the Press-Gazette article has quotes from a few local officials which indicates the Packers are looking for some taxpayer money for their own entertainment district. So there will likely be some local opposition when the specifics come to light.

This isn't something I expect will have any effect on the team, or become some gold mine to provide all the money they to sign every free agent. But it could be something that really changes the area around the stadium as we know it.
