WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – During their next meeting, council members in Wilmington will discuss spending over $100,000 in 2012 to figure out exactly what it will take to build a baseball stadium in the area.
The City of Wilmington will need outside assistance to help identify the best site, teams and the level of support in the community for a baseball stadium.
The plan would call for a $50,000 feasibility study that would cost the city $25,000 this year and next.
The city is also budgeting $120,000 in legal fees for the next two years, in addition to paying $90,000 for a financial advisor.
City Council is also preparing to spend $150,000 for outside legal counsel relating the development of a convention center hotel. In total, council members will be voting on spending over $150,000 through June on the development of these two projects.
Wilmington City Council will meet Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.
