Mecklenburg County owns and operates a facility known as the American Legion Memorial Stadium which was acquired from the City as a part of the 1992 agreement to merge and consolidate the City Recreation Department into the County Park & Recreation Department. 


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.
