Stadium proposal moves through one step
City Manager Bev Cameron took the stadium proposal to the city’s Economic Development Authority on Monday, gaining its unanimous approval of the concept.
Cameron has said the city needs to take nearly a dozen steps to finalize the plan to bring the Hagerstown Suns to the city. The Class A affiliate of the Washington Nationals hopes to have a stadium built in time for the 2015 season.
The Suns have partnered with Diamond Nation to build a multipurpose stadium in the Celebrate Virginia South development. The partners are continuing this week on negotiations to obtain the land.
