Round Rock Sports Complex
DON’T DO IT.
Please understand, I’m a recent transplant to Round Rock. However, I’ve come from an area that recently did the same thing that the city managers here are considering (in process of).
None of these projects have EVER made money for the city, county, region, etc. NEVER.
Do a google search on “Ford Park, Jefferson County, Texas”. Jefferson county built Ford Park without consulting the voters. It cost about 20 million once everything was said and done… then it cost 1 million to 1.5 million per year. That was what the county gave to Ford Park every year to keep it solvent. It was billed as the greatest entertainment center in Southeast Texas.
We had two concerts per year that may have been half filled. We had the Regional Softball tournament and a rodeo. That’s it. The entertainment complex was empty the rest of the time.
It will not work.
