Orlando Sanford International (KSFB), Orlando, Florida: Seminole targets parcel near airport for sports complex

Seminole County is considering property near Orlando/Sanford International Airport for a planned sports complex.

County commissioners recently directed their staff to move toward acquiring a property on East Lake Mary Boulevard, across from the airport, said Joe Abel, the county's director of leisure services.

The County Commission will revisit the issue and could approve the purchase of the parcel, which is just east of State Road 417, next month, Abel said. The parcel is about 214 acres and has an asking price of $9.8 million, he said.

The sports complex would include baseball and softball diamonds as well as multi-use fields. Backers say the complex, which could cost up to $20 million, would attract out-of-area teams to Seminole County for tournaments.
