That’s one less proposal to kick around today

Though City Council was scheduled to discuss, and possibly act on, using city-owned land (including parkland) for a Major League Soccer stadium and practice fields, that discussion has been put on indefinite hold. A Feb. 2 memo from Acting Parks Director Kimberly McNeeley explains that staff needs more time to “commence with a robust community engagement” before they can figure out when the item will return to the agenda. “A robust community engagement is estimated to take approximately three (3) months,” wrote McNeeley, who added that, of course, Council members can choose to schedule the discussion for a specific time if it is their prerogative.
