NEW ALBANY —
He added he wants to ensure a new facility is accessible to all, fits the needs of the organization now and in the future, and will generate community pride.
“We’ll definitely be having some more discussions. As a whole, I view it as a positive,” Gahan said. “We’re going to continue to monitor and assist where we can, and our role will be to make sure they have a facility that can again service the needs of the city of New Albany.”
Gahan added the city’s plan will not be abandoned until at least the administration is convinced the Northside Christian location — which is near the Interstate 265 interchange off Charlestown Road — meets the criteria for hosting a large recreational facility.
When Boone met with the city last week, he did request public aid in funding the project, Gahan said.
In the organization’s news release, Boone dubbed the Little League effort “Project Team-Building”, and said it will be a community-wide effort. He said more details will be released in coming weeks on the organization’s website, www.nallb.com.
