I found out what we are going to do with the American cities..

On June 3rd, I will post in the American board a poll with all the American cities that want to bid. I will make a template by Memorial Day (Monday May 28) that all American cities will have to follow.

hey sorry i've been absent was busy graduating.

I have several questions for you BruinsFan.

from my understanding of catching up through reading all the posts, we are doing a prelim for the US states on June 6 and voting for which one continues on.

1) why exactly do we have to have a prelim trial for just the US cities instead of everyone turning in a full booklet on the original date. Most of the canidates seem to be US cities anyways and this way we can have nicer longer more fully realized presentations for people to look at.

2) even if we do the june 6 prelim what the hell is required for it? a full booklet? (which seems unfair considering everyone else has two more months i believe?)
a slogan, icon, and mission statement?
More? Less? it all seems very vague.

if we are doing this June 6 competition then we need to immediately establish what the requirements and expectations are for it.

for my two cents i think we should do a checkpoint for all participants sort of as a deceleration that we will officially be bidding for the olympics. all participants would require a logo, mission statement, why your city should hold the Olympics etc etc (whatever is decided). Just so we can establish who is really going to put the time into this.
and anyone who meets this deadline then presents their final book however many weeks/months from now; regardless if they are a us country or not. i mean it is a game i think everyone would enjoy seeing as many well formed bids as possible.

with that said this is your thread so you of course have the final say, just wanted to give my two cents and thought this would give everyone a chance to really get into and make a nice bid.

I wanted to make it as realistic as possible.

You need a logo, and slogan by June 2nd. I wa thinking of having 2 or 3USA cities move on past the prelims instead of one.

For the main bid you would work on the bid book which I explained earlier in the thread.

Olympic Heights
Four seven hundred-fifty foot buildings planned in Boston Seaport at site of proposed Olympic Village

The Boston Olympic Committee, and RTKL Associates announced the first plans this evening of a $2.5 billion plan to turn the Boston Seaport District into an Olympic Park that would be the main area of the 2028 Summer Olympic Games. The Committee, and RTKL Associates announced the plan at the National Mayors Convention in Washington DC. RTKL Associates has been named the 3rd best developer in the world by numerous magazines and rating Companies. The site of the 4 towers would be 750 feet tall each and house the Olympic athletes that take part in the 2028 Summer Olympics if Boston gets the games. "This whole plan, which we will be rolling out in intervals in the next couple of weeks, is all dependent on the Olympics coming [to Boston]. " Mayor Menino said , who is committe chairman. The site would be on Fargo Street which would be approximately 0.3 miles away from the Boston Convention and Exhibit Center, which is slated hold "a major amount of events" according to Susan LaBlanc, who is a committee spokeswoman. The renderings of the Olympic Park are expected to be announced in the coming days, but the proposed skyscrapers are said to have a very futuristic feel and all the towers would be tied for the 2nd tallest buildings in Boston behind Hancock Place (790 feet). The Olympic Park would also have a devoted MBTA Subway Station , which LaBlanc said the MBTA would walk more about at a later time. According to rumor, the MBTA is expected to extend the Red Line into the Seaport District and service the area. Other amenities that were announced to take place at the Olympic Park is a small outdoor food court (with park, and pond included) that would house 8 food establishments, and 2 restaurants. If the Olympics come to Boston and the facility gets built, UMass Boston will convert the area into a student living area (dormitory) after the Olympics. UMass is expected to foot 50% of the bill, while the developer foots 45%, and public funds would make up 10%. City beautification activists are pleased with how things are going so far in the area. "So far, this area is definitely going to be a better functioning looking area than before." said Suzie Tree who is a activist for "Pretty Boston." The current area is a set of parking lots. RTKL Associates also pointed out that that bottom levels of the skyscrapers will hold retail levels. During the Olympics only will the building house Residential, and Retail. After the games, The bottom of the structure is expected to be retail (the bottom floor) while the next 25 stories will house Offices, another 35 stories are to be residential, and 15 stories are expected to be public space in each of the buildings. The public section would be the top 15 stories of the buildings.
