Collier commissioners OK new amateur sports park

Published: Updated:

NAPLES, Fla. County commissioners unanimously voted in favor of building a new amateur sports park Tuesday.

The county is considering two plots of land: City Gate, which was previously considered for the Atlanta Braves spring training facility, and an alternative site down the street.

Commissioners argue the county needs more fields for youth sports and that the project would be a draw for business.

The county is looking to increase the tourism to tax to fund the project, which will go before the Tourist Development Council in a month.
