City Council Approves BB&T BallparkJune 13, 2012 11:08 am
My friends, Charlotte has done it. Congratulations! It was an unwavering commitment to the value of this project that made this all
possible. In April of 2014, we will be playing ball in Third Ward in the new BB&T Ballpark.
Thank you all for your support, calls, letters and engagement during this process. City Council has voted to provide the Knights a $7.25MM grant to support the ballpark construction. I have included some of the media coverage of last night’s vote. We need to thank James Mitchell, as chair of the City Council Economic Development Committee, Ron Kimble, David Howard and Dan Rajkowski as well as Don Beaver and the entire Knights organization for working through this complicated process.
And thanks to all of you. Please reach out and thank our City Council for their support…and please support our Knights!
