Will the new facility take away revenue from existing facilities in Lenawee County?

No.  This facility will be an added benefit for our colleges and other event facilities.  This will allow our colleges additional space that they do not currently have for their sports teams to practice year-round.  This will give them additional space to add new sports teams to their roster. Additionally, they can attract division and regional championships and host them at this facility.

Many of the local schools and athletic facilities have come out in support of the project as they see the added benefit to their existing programs. This facility will not compete with our local public school events.

Event facilities within the County can still host the current events they attract annually.  They will be able to partner with the proposed facility to attract larger events.  The proposed facility would be able to bid to garner larger events that will bring tourists and revenue to Lenawee County.
