Staff with the City of Fayetteville's government access channel, FayTV7, want to hear from you. What topics or issues would you like to see covered in an episode of "Fayetteville in 5", FayTV7's bi-weekly news brief?

The City of Fayetteville is exploring the possibility of a downtown baseball stadium and mixed-used commercial property, including a parking garage near its downtown district as an economic catalyst for Murchison Road and the downtown. The proposed site is at the southern end of Murchison Road, adjacent to downtown and Fayetteville State University, and could be a very transformative project for the Murchison Road corridor. With the NCDOT realignment of Rowan Street Bridge and the intersection of Bragg Boulevard, and the closing of Bragg Boulevard which will increase the traffic along Murchison Road, this redevelopment would create a major gateway and provide patrons and residents access to the NC Veterans Park, linear trails, downtown businesses and restaurants.

Fayetteville has the distinction of being where baseball icon Babe Ruth hit his first professional home run.

Officials will soon be traveling to Sugar Land, Texas to tour the Houston suburb’s baseball stadium. Sugar Land’s stadium is part of a multi-use complex and Fayetteville officials would like to gather information and best practices about how the complex has economically impacted Sugar Land.  The complex offers other uses such as soccer, football, lacrosse and swimming.

Fayetteville officials have already visited Durham Bulls Athletic Park and the adjacent American Tobacco Campus in downtown Durham and BB&T Ballpark in downtown Charlotte. Downtown baseball stadiums have proven to be economic development catalysts in other cities across the country and officials want to examine if the same economic successes can be accomplished here.

A driving simulation showing the physical boundaries around the stadium and mixed-use project, which includes the reconstructed Rowan Street bridge and Bragg Boulevard are shown at the following link: https://youtu.be/2DS1r76FFt0.

Give us thoughts on the proposed complex.

The 440th Airlift Wing is a critical component in the high level training and timely deployment of our Airborne and Special Operations forces at Fort Bragg. The placement of the C-130H at Fort Bragg has proven to be a critical asset to mission essential parameters of rapid response, global reach of the forces, and critical training of the forces.

It is estimated that 440th Airlift Wing leaving would have a $77.8 million impact on the local economy.
