Sportsplex: needed or not?

When the Monroe Bypass comes through, Stallings is going to be hurting for commercial dollars. There’s no argument.

But does it make sense for the town to suddenly become a developer, purchasing land to later lease out? We fight over thousands of dollars for a park plan, but people jump up and down over the idea of spending millions on a piece of property. If the idea is so great, why doesn’t National Amateur Sports put a group together to buy the land? Why lease, unless they were expecting the location to be a temporary fix?

Mason Smith,
