Mecklenburg County has been in collaborative discussions with the Charlotte Independence regarding a long-term tenant lease at a renovated, American Legion Memorial Stadium.  It has also had preliminary discussions with the City of Charlotte / CRVA regarding a possible capital investment.   Staff has analyzed the cost and event availability of using natural turf versus synthetic turf and is prepared to make a recommendation.   Board members will receive an update on these opportunities and will be asked to approve a $32 million capital project ordinance to renovate American Legion Memorial Stadium.
