CONNERSVILLE SPORTS COMPLEX TAKES MAJOR STEP

(CONNERSVILLE)- Plans for a new sports complex in Connersville took a major step this week when city council voted 5-2 to purchase 49 acres of land on Veteran's Memorial Drive. The $325,000 that's being spent for the land comes from the city's environmental remediation fund. But, it only covers the land purchase. Funding to create six baseball fields and create parking is still being sought. Plans also include connecting trails to the Whitewater River. Local leaders have sought to move the Babe Ruth fields from their current location due to annual flooding issues.
