Clay County Leaders Propose New Royals Stadium in the Northland
Clay County leaders are wanting a new Royals stadium in the Northland. They are hoping to create a “Wrigleyville” atmosphere in the area. The leaders have been in talks with the Royals and hope the organization will be interested in the proposal.
In a letter to the Kansas City community, North Kansas City Mayor Bryant DeLong, Clay County Presiding Commissioner Jerry Nolte and Clay County Western Commissioner Scott Wagner said they have been in talks with the Royals for months and hope the organization will build a new stadium in Clay County.
The Royals are, of course, currently playing at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City in Jackson County. But, the lease on that stadium expires in 2031 with an option to extend it. The Royals have said they are taking the Northland proposal seriously, but they are also considering other options.
The Northland proposal would include a new stadium, as well as a surrounding development with restaurants, shops, and entertainment options. The leaders believe this would create a vibrant new area that would attract people from all over the Kansas City area. The Royals have said they are taking the Northland proposal seriously, but they are also considering other options.
The decision on where to build a new stadium could have a major impact on the future of the Northland and could spur economic development. However, a new stadium could also lead to increased traffic congestion and other problems.
The Royals’ decision is likely to be a hotly debated issue in the coming months. It is definitely something that Royals fans should keep an eye on.
