Town of Bluefield looking to build multi-use sports facility

Posted:
BLUEFIELD, VA (WVVA) -

Officials with the Town of Bluefield, Virginia announce plans for a new recreation park.

Town leaders propose that the new facility would attract nearly 31,000 additional visitors to the area each year.  The $6 million dollar project would directly benefit Bluefield College, Graham Middle School, Graham High School and local youth sports programs. It would also host concerts, expos and fundraising events.

Plans call for it to be built behind Graham Middle School. Construction would start in early 2019.

The announcement comes months after the City of Bluefield, West Virginia made a proposal to transfer ownership of Mitchell Stadium to the Mercer County Board of Education.
