Indiana city plans stadium in flood-prone area

KOKOMO (AP) — A flood-prone neighborhood near downtown Kokomo will become the site of a new $9 million baseball stadium under plans announced by city officials.

Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight said Monday he hoped the project would spur community pride while making use of an area that was hit by April 2013 flooding that damaged more than 300 homes around the central Indiana city.

The Kokomo Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1jaCfko ) plans include also spending $2.5 million on flood-prevention measures along Wildcat Creek.

Plans call for the stadium to have about 2,300 seats and 1,500 spots for lawn seating.

Goodnight says the stadium is primarily meant for use by high school and youth league teams. It is also designed to hold a regulation sized soccer field and could be used for concerts and other events.
