Leaders of a steering committee behind the proposed development of a 17-field sports complex in the Three Rivers area have a little work to do if they wish to receive a financial allocation from St. Joseph County.
The matter of funding for property acquisition was discussed by St. Joseph County commissioners during their executive committee meeting Thursday.
County administrator Pat Yoder asked steering committee representative Jared Hoffmaster about some documents requested earlier in the summer.
Yoder said the documentation is being sought so commissioners are clear on where the county’s northern and western townships and villages stand in regard to the proposed development. Sturgis city manager Mike Hughes is in the process of securing the same documentation from townships and villages in the east and south ends of the county.
The proposed complex – estimated to cost about $3.9 million to develop – is slated for an area in Lockport Township along Enterprise Drive, east of North Main Street.
Hoffmaster indicated the asking price for the 40-acre parcel is $400,000.
The sports complex would be for youth sports and feature three football, six soccer, four baseball and four softball fields, Hoffmaster said.
