    AB InBev will not continue to operate it at annual loss, indefinitely. They’re far more likely to a) shut it down, b) charge more for admission (than just charging for parking), and/or c) rebrand it to be more Budweiser and less animals and history. As for the Zoo and their edifice complex – no, just no. There are far greater needs for our limited tax dollars. When will our focus on increasing sales taxes become unsustainable? When they reach 12%? 15%? 20%?!

    How about a fifth option (and one I never thought that I’d say) – make it a park! The County (or the State) could acquire it and turn it into something like Queeny Park, Francis Park or O’Fallon Park. Take down the fences, open it up for unstructured public use and use the current infrastructure to generate some revenues through concession agreements. (And with the number of existing, nearby, ballfields, hopefuly there would be minimal pressure to build more.)

    FYI your 3rd choice isn’t an option. Do a little research on what municipality Grant’s Farm lies in and what it’s zoning laws and ordinances are. Also look up what part lies in a flood plain. Not going to have to worry about any commercial or residential development here!
