From the city of Lilburn:
Big League Dreams is still on the table, but the timeframe for developing the mega sports complex has been extended another year. At a special called meeting on Thursday, the Lilburn City Council extended a franchise agreement with Big League Dreams as planning continues for a future baseball park.
Big League Dreams would feature four fields that are replicas of major league baseball stadiums, drawing tournaments, tourists, and ultimately more economic activity to Lilburn.
"Big League Dreams could be an economic game-changer for Lilburn," City Manager Bill Johnsa said. “We look forward to continuing progress on this project as all the details are solidified.”
The Lilburn Downtown Development Authority recently purchased the abandoned Jackson Creek Water Treatment Facility, 37 acres at the intersection of Indian Trail Road and Lawrenceville Highway. The DDA plans to sell the property to a private developer, who is negotiating with Big League Dreams to build the complex.
