They are gonna spend some money to fix it up and lease it back to some of the best baseball minds in the area. And that is saying alot. Considereing we are neighbors with the East Cobb Baseball complex.
The field has been sitting unused for the last few years. The city is sinking more than $50,000 a year in to it for nothing.
During the council's Monday work session, members voted 4 2, with Philip Goldstein and Annette Lewis opposed, and Johnny Sinclair absent, to spend $600,000 in voter approved parks bond money to renovate the Aviation Sports Complex off South Marietta Parkway. According to the proposed contract, 6 4 3 DP Baseball Academy will then lease the park until Dec. 31, 2013, which is when the current city council's term expires.
"I have a concern about tying up a public park for a private profit company for an extended period of time where we're spending a substantial amount of city funds to improve the park," Goldstein said.

This is a fantastic use of the money. People, tell me what the land was doing prior to this agreement? Nothing! To have a sports league take over the field means Air Max 95 Ultra Jcrd one thing for the city MONEY. Try looking down the road at East Cobb and the tournaments the host every year. This means visitors to the area spending their money in the area. I'm sure the hotels are happy about the possibility of found revenue.

The city will also be relieved of about $60,000 in yearly maintenance and utility expenses.
For the first year, in 2011, it will pay the city $1,667 per month to lease the facility. For 2012, the lease calls for $2,083 per month, or 3.5 percent gross not to exceed $30,000 per year. The third year calls for $2,500 per month, or 3.5 percent gross not to exceed $36,000.
Rich Buss, the city's parks director, said once the council approves the contract Wednesday, the city will begin work on the park renovation, with an expected finish time of January. At that time, the city will hand over the park to the baseball group that wants to lease the complex and provide youth baseball and softball programs there.

Not to mention the economic impact this may have on the area. Have you ever been to a baseball tournament? Teams will be there all day. The Dunkin' Donuts, Papa Johns and other businesses in the area should reap some benefits from the weekend tournaments at the facility. The local businesses should be supporting this fully.

city to invest in. I don't know the figures, but as a past hotel executive, I can tell you the found revenue over the three years will far exceed the the $600,000 in upfront costs. Open your eyes and try not to argue for once.
This will provide programming that the city does not provide now and will not have to pay for in the future.
It is amazing that I agree with Mr. Goldstein on this upcoming lease with baseball company We are going to spend 600K to fix up Aviation Park and amenities for use by a private company and I, as a citizen, will not be able to use it without paying a fee. If you crunch the numbers (based on moderate useage instead of full capacity) it appears that we will not get back about 200K of our money. But the greater problem, as far as I can see, is that our children will not be able to use this facility without spending our money for using our park.
Goldstein and Lewis don't support the idea of turning over a public park to a private business.
A final vote will occur at Wednesday's formal council meeting.
The baseball group was founded in 2007 by Danny Pralgo of Roswell, CEO of Westbury Carpet One, a flooring company with stores in Marietta and Norcross. Pralgo was a baseball player at Lassiter High School in the 1980s and has served as a head coach in the East Cobb Baseball program. The baseball company was the top responder to a Request for Proposals the city issued last fall.
