Goodyear City Council Agenda for 7/7
Staff Report Includes Community Benefit anticipated, Fiscal Impact, Debt Service, Operations Cost and the tentative agreement with the Arizona Sports and Tourism Authority to additional funding as it becomes available.
Twenty year agreement with two 5 year extensions. Reds to occupy facility in October 2009 and begin Spring Training in 2010. Reds to pay $ 100,000 a year rental/use fee adjusted for inflation.
Compared to Sarasota...I can see why the Reds are going to Goodyear. 38,000 square foot facility, 2 major league fields, 6 full practice fields, and 2 half practice fields or agility field, new stadium (shared with Indians) for $100,000 a year...it is unfortunately...a no brainer.
