Council plays hardball with academy
Feb 5, 2013 / 8:35 am
It no longer looks like a Baseball Legacy Complex will be constructed in Summerland, as council has put an end to the negotiations.
In April of 2011, Summerland was approached with a request to purchase District owned land at 16700 Prairie Valley Road, in order to establish a baseball academy.
Council was interested at the time, as eventual development would bring long-term economic benefits to the area. But now they are not comfortable the plan will ever come to fruition, so negotiations have stopped.
That decision was made at a council meeting Monday evening to ensure the interests of taxpayers are fully protected.
