City Council could move toward full development of baseball project on Tuesday

UPDATE: City Manager Bev Cameron released the final report from the negotiating team and a memo summarizing its work.

Reporter Bill Freehling is working on a full story on the report that will be available online soon at his blog.


On Tuesday, the City Council could vote to move ahead with a proposal to bring the Hagerstown Suns to Fredericksburg and launch a series of steps that would be needed for it to go forward.

Council is slated to have an open discussion on the negotiations that have been taking place between the city and Suns representatives during  a work session on Tuesday.

Council may then vote in its regular meeting on whether to accept the negotiating team’s work and to move forward with the conceptual framework the two sides crafted.

If the council takes that action, the draft resolution lays out 11 steps that would logically follow.
