Jones and Bagby were then directed to explore available options and return with recommendations.

Three workshops were held, exploring current facilities, needs, use of the facilities, desired locations, and funding.

At the third workshop Larry Zehnder, Senior Parks and Recreation Planner for Barge, Waggoner, Sumner & Cannon, presented an in depth look into the process and costs of planning and building a state-of-the-art sports complex.

Conclusions:

The most desirable/needed facilities are multipurpose fields, baseball fields, softball fields.

Funding possibilities include ad valorem taxes, special district, bed tax, school district partnerships.

The facility should be geared towards locals.
