The projected $37-million project aims to build a facility on Baltimore St. and Summit Ave. and is designed to be used all year-round.
Funds will come from the city, county, state and private donations. A private donor has committed $15-million to the project.
Right now, it's proposed that the Suns will pay a minimum of $6-million in lease payments over a 20-year span.
"The City Council has obviously done their homework on this project," says Kristie Lawson with the Maugansville Little League, "so I feel comfortable with the decision to move forward to building a new stadium."
"Like I said it's nothing new to me," says Barbara Hovermill from Williamsport. "I know what they're selling, it's just not for me. I don't think it's the thing to do."
City Council members say the project can't move forward until negotiations end with the Hagerstown Suns and the second phase of the environmental study is completed.
