GREENVILLE — Washington County voters will be asked Nov. 2 to approve a 2 percent tax on hotels and motels to support construction of a multipurpose sports complex.

The sportsplex would be located on 95 acres next to the Washington County Convention Center.

Lawmakers approved the tax this year. Supervisors this week approved levying the tax pending voter approval.

Gwin Koestler of the Delta Sportsplex Foundation tells the Delta Democrat Times that the project is expected to cost $20 million.

The sportsplex will feature three baseball complexes of five fields each while utilizing Legion Field and the four existing baseball fields currently located at the site.

Each complex will have a concession pavilion and restroom facilities.
