(WVVA) -

BLUEFIELD, WV (WVVA) - The Bluefield City Board of Directors motioned to delay the transfer of Mitchell Stadium to the Mercer County Board of Education. Many community members came out and voiced their opinion, noting there is no clear indication about who will still be able to access the stadium. The board agreed on this matter, and has elected to go back and make sure the stadium still stays as it's intended purpose: an educational sports facility. 

The board also is going back to ensure there will be a clear line of who will be responsible for the up keep of the stadium once the transfer is complete. 

The next board meeting is on June 26th. Stay with WVVA for all updates on this story.
