Georgetown may get new sports complex

GEORGETOWN, Del. - Georgetown could play host to the region's newest sports complex. 

That's if  a proposed development is approved by city leaders. 

The $4 million dollar project would be mostly funded by developers but county leaders are being asked to pitch in as well. 

In total, the county would have to pitch in an addition $1.5 million dollars.

If approved, the proposal would bring eight soccer fields, a cross country course and about a dozen pickle ball courts to an area off of Sand Hill Road. 

Georgetown City Manager, Gene Dvornick, says the project could be a game-changer for the area.  

"Looks to us as a great economic development opportunity for the town. Hopefully brings some new businesses into town and there certainly is a demand for sports facilities in Sussex County."

Organizers of the proposed complex are slated to go before the city's planning commission next month to submit their plans. 

Dvornick says the community is encouraged to weigh in on the project online.
