ASHBURN, Va. (CBSDC) — The last public hearing on the proposed BallPark at One Loudoun was held Monday night, and attendees expressed a variety of opinions on the planned 5,500-seat stadium.
Two minor league franchises, Loudoun Hounds baseball and Virginia Cavalry FC soccer, plan to call the Ashburn venue home. But nearby residents think the added draw to the community could cause problems.
According to a Washington Post report, the stadium was originally approved in 2009 as part of a mixed-use development area called Kincora at the intersection of Routes 7 and 28. But, after Kincora officials failed to find funding for road improvements around the development, plans for the stadium were shifted to One Loudoun, which is located a mile west on Route 7.
