Is there any official confirmation of the $100m aquarium project? I haven't seen or heard anything aside from this thread.

While I certainly welcome the news, and I'm happy to see the zoo continuing to invest in large scale projects, as befits a metro tourism anchor, I have to say I would rather see such a sum invested in the park around the zoo. Swope could be quite spectacular, at least in the immediate vicinity of the zoo/starlight facilities, with that kind of sum invested.

I think I started this aquarium talk because of picking up on a call that turned out to be a poll. They started by asking favorability on Mayor Sly and each of the candidates for his place. They then talked about the aquarium and if I would be in favor, or still be in favor if they were asking for $7 mill from the city. They also wanted opinion on the zoo director.
