Braves Spring Training baseball and news from the Great Walled City of Atlantis

Haven't heard any news of late about a baseball stadium in John Prince Park? Just assumed nothing is happening? Think again. When more information about this becomes available will let you know. From the City of Atlantis' website:

City of Atlantis
260 Orange Tree Drive
City Council Workshop
Wednesday, April 13, 2016 at 6:00 p.m.

From the minutes of the meeting:

Mayor Kintz called the meeting to order at 6:01 p.m. 

[and. . .]

     Mayor Kintz opened the discussion of a baseball spring training facility and homeless resource center in John Prince Park. [emphasis added] County officials are pursuing the Atlanta Braves to build a spring training facility in the park along 6th Avenue. County officials are also considering putting a homeless center in the park across from JFK Drive. By consensus, a Resolution in support of the spring training facility will be brought to Council at the April 20th meeting.
     Meeting adjourned at 7:56 p.m.

A homeless shelter instead of a baseball stadium? No brainer, i will support the Braves stadium. We have enough problems in Lake Worth, if they build a homeless shelter at JPP, it will only get worse! Makes you wonder if TOB knows this....once this gets out to the public her supporters on her Save JPP facebook page will run for the hills.
