At Tuesday’s regularly scheduled city council meeting the Council approved a resolution for a contact with Conventions, Sports & Leisure International (CSL) to provide a naming rights analysis for the sports complex currently under construction.
The analysis will determine whether the sport complex has a naming rights value.
“Help us understand if there is a naming rights component today or if it’s better left to contemplate in the future,” City Manager Jason Little said. “So, again we’re not chasing our tails knowing if there is a value out there that we seek the right amount, the right partner at the right time.”
CSL will draft an analysis in 30 days and should be ready by mid-June.
The Council also approved a resolution authorizing an encroachment licensing agreement between the City and Hillwood Development Corporation for the developer to build a monument on city property in the Pennsylvania Avenue right-of-way. The monument will be seen from Highway 5 to show the entrance to the Hillwood subdivision.
The developer will have to build, maintain and repair the sign as needed.
