The Courant’s Steven Goode obtained a copy of the ball park planning study prepared for the city by consulting firm Brailsford & Dunlavey. From Goode:
The city commissioned a planning study for a new ball park with Washington D.C.-based Brailsford & Dunlavey, a consulting firm with 20 years of experience in the sports venue industry. According to the company, it has provided services for more than 60 ball park projects.
As part of its benefits study, Brailsford & Dunlavey projected one time construction benefits of 903 jobs, supporting $22 million in earnings and $2.2 million in tax revenues.
Under recurring annual operating benefits the company estimated that Having a team in Hartford would also result in $1.7 million in annual tax revenues, according to the report, and other benefits would included nearly 24,000 hotel stays, $3.5 million in hotel spending and $4.9 million in food and beverage spending each year.
