Council approves draft performance agreement for stadium
Fredericksburg City Council Tuesday evening approved a draft performance agreement for the stadium proposal.
Council also gave preliminary approval to creating a tourism zone ordinance as part of the incentive package being crafted between the stadium partners and the city.
The plan is for the proposed stadium to be home to the Hagerstown Suns, the Class A affiliate of the Washington Nationals.
The team needed the performance agreement to submit to Major League Baseball as part of its application to relocate from Maryland to Fredericksburg. The application is due Oct. 1, City Attorney Kathleen Dooley said.
