Spotsy set to approve resolution on city baseball stadium
The Spotsylvania County Board of Supervisors next Tuesday is scheduled to approve a resolution expressing concerns about traffic from the proposed baseball stadium in neighboring Fredericksburg.
Courtland District Supervisor David Ross asked staff to draft the resolution after hearing from concerned constituents who live on Bragg Road and River Road. You can read last week’s story here.
The resolution is on the meeting’s “consent agenda,” which typically includes various non-controversial items and is approved without much discussion. The consent agenda is scheduled to be voted on at the beginning of the 6 p.m. meeting at the Holbert Building, 9104 Courthouse Road.
Despite its placement on the meeting’s agenda, the resolution has garnered controversy. You can read a recent letter to the editor on the issue here.
The resolution, which you can check out here, ends with: “…the Spotsylvania County Board of Supervisors respectfully requests that the Fredericksburg City Council forward any analysis or information that has been compiled regarding the anticipated traffic impacts to the local region and consider including Spotsylvania County as a stakeholder to allow input into decisions made regarding the development of the stadium complex.”
