Indiana city explores P3 for sports complex operations
Indiana – The city of Westfield Redevelopment Commission will host an online bidders conference on March 18 as it considers entering a public-private partnership (P3) for a new owner or operator of Grand Park Sports Complex.
Westerfield Grand Park
Grand Park, which opened in 2014, is an approximately 400-acre sports campus which includes 31 soccer fields, 26 baseball diamonds, two administration buildings, seven concession stands, and a 378,000-square-foot multi-use event center.
The campus hosts more than 2.5 million visits a year and has spurred more than $1.3 billion of economic development in Westfield. It has events booked through 2024.
City officials said additional investments from the private sector are needed to improve the facility and adequately compensate staff.
