Fayetteville City Council Approves Two Baseball Deals

March 28, 2017

The Fayetteville City Council gave final approval Monday night to two complicated deals that officials say will allow construction of a downtown baseball stadium. Both votes were unanimous, and no one spoke at Monday’s public hearing for the master development plan, which paves the way for the city to complete the stadium’s design and then break ground this summer. The development plan had been under negotiations for months. The city has signed a 30-year lease with the Houston Astros, which will field a Carolina Leagueteam at the new stadium when it opens for the 2019 baseball season.
