Lee County Continues Talks To Bring Nationals To Ft. Myers
Published February 5, 2013
Commissioners last night heard that the Nationals have "scaled back their requests" from the county for a potential move to City of Palms. The team has laid out a "four-year, four-phase plan to meet their improvement needs," with an initial $15.5M phase to be completed within a year. The Nationals have rejected two county staff proposals: one that would have reduced rent to $1 a year "if the Nationals agreed to move into the stadium as is," and another in which the requested improvements would be made if the team agreed to a "30-year lease at $500,000 per year" (NAPLES DAILY NEWS, 2/5).
The Commission meeting can be viewed live here starting at 9:30am ET.
