Here’s an excerpt from the Asheville Citizen-Times article:
In a future envisioned by several entities, a renovated McCormick Field could serve as the centerpiece of downtown Asheville’s south slope redevelopment, a bustling area surrounded by bars, restaurants and other businesses, spurring tourism and economic development.
All the idea needs is a definitive plan — and millions of dollars to make that plan happen.
Very preliminary discussions have been held by the city of Asheville, the Asheville Buncombe Regional Sports Commission and the Asheville Tourists about plans to upgrade the home of professional baseball since 1924.
“We don’t have a direction, we don’t have an architect at this point,” Tourists general manager Larry Hawkins said. “What we have is an interest in all parties to see what might be possible.”
