Peoria City Council approves spring training clubhouse work

The Peoria City Council this week approved a $26.4 million construction contract for upgrades to the city’s spring-training complex and outlined more specifics on other improvements in the 83rd Avenue area.

Mortenson Construction will handle the improvements and expansion of clubhouses for the Seattle Mariners and San Diego Padres. Work should begin shortly after spring training ends in March and be completed by the start of the season in 2014.

The new clubhouses come as part of the city’s recent 20-year agreement to keep the teams training in Peoria. The Peoria Sports Complex, near 83rd Avenue and Paradise Lane, was the first spring-training stadium nationwide to host dual teams, which has become standard in the Cactus League.

The council also approved basic details of its partnership with a private developer to create a high-endretail and entertainment district near the facility.
