Proposal for Minor League Baseball Stadium and a Development of a New Downtown Franklin


A PUBLIC INFORMATION MEETING (see Notice) HAS BEEN SCHEDULED FOR THURSDAY, APRIL 17TH, AT 6:30 P.M. IN THE COURT ROOM OF THE FRANKLIN LAW ENFORCEMENT CENTER LOCATED AT 9455 W. LOOMIS ROAD.
 
 

THE COMMON COUNCIL WILL CONSIDER THE PROPOSAL AT A SPECIAL MEETING ON TUESDAY, APRIL 22ND.


The Rock Professional Baseball Stadium Development Proposal Franklin Task Force met Monday evening, April 14th, to receive a revised proposal for a minor league baseball stadium.  After meeting in closed session to review the proposal, the Task Force returned to open session and had staff present to the public an overview of the proposal.  After further public comment, the Task Force unanimously approved the following motion:
 

“Move that the Task Force forward the proposal to the Common Council and recommend that the Common Council consider the proposal for a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), incorporating a Tax Incremental District (TID) to create a new downtown area and economic incentives for construction of a minor league stadium, as a reasonable proposal that addresses the risks associated with the proposal while creating a valid opportunity to initiate economic development leading to a new downtown Franklin, subject to 1) detailed review by professional consultants as to the viability of a TIF District and as to the viability of commercial and retail development in this area, as called for in the MOU; 2) the Common Council considering the proposed MOU in the context of its overall development goals for the area and the City; 3) the Common Council considering the input of citizens and the overall best interest of the City when reaching a final decision on this MOU; and 4) review by the City Attorney; and that the Mayor direct that a Public Information meeting on the proposal be held Thursday, April 17th, and that the Common Council hold a special Common Council meeting on Tuesday, April 22nd, to consider the matter.”
 

Staff noted in its presentation that the proposal is really a proposal for the development of a new Downtown Franklin.  The proposal envisions a Tax Incremental District (TID) that incorporates the stadium area.  Working together, the TID and the stadium development could initiate as much as $100 million dollars in new development near the intersection of Rawson Avenue and 76th Street and along Loomis Road.  The proposal does provide an opportunity for the City to hire independent professional consultants to further study the financial details prior to final commitment to a TID.
