Dotte Daily: Schlitterbahn property proposed to become Homefield, an amateur sports and entertainment venue
"A part owner of Sporting KC, Robb Heineman, is presenting his ideas to the Unified Government for Homefield, an amateur sports, entertainment and sports entertainment venue to be built on the site of the Schlitterbahn water park at 94th and State Avenue.
A proposal for the Homefield development in the UG agenda for Monday night’s committee meeting stated that it would include a $60 million Homefield building with 150,000 square feet, as well as a $15 million Homefield Outdoor facility for training and entertainment programs for water and outdoor sports."
Whilst the youth sports idea is interesting . . . It's unclear how much taxpayer cash and/or breaks will be required for this facility that will hopefully prove less disastrous than its predecessor.
