For Immediate Release
Date: August 18, 2014
Residents can provide input on Grayson Stadium, the Savannah Sand Gnats and the prospect of a new multi-purpose stadium downtown as part of an online survey launched today. The survey was created by C.H. Johnson Consulting as part of a study the company has been contracted to complete exploring the feasibility of a new multi-purpose stadium downtown.
The survey can be accessed at savannahga.gov/baseballsurvey.
Historic Grayson Stadium was constructed in 1926, and has undergone a series of renovations and improvements over the years, the most recent in 2007. The Savannah Sand Gnats owners would like to pursue the construction of a modern stadium in the downtown area. City Council approved the feasibility study to investigate the cost and impact of a new stadium, as well as the option of upgrading the current location.
The study is expected to be complete around the end of September.
