HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (8/4/17) — The tide has turned concerning the disposition of the proposed sports complex property off I-69.

Hopkins Fiscal Court tabled a resolution this morning to place nearly 100 acres of county-owned land up for bid after a motion was passed this week to surplus the site.

Several magistrates and 16 others that attended the called meeting discussed the resolution after it was tabled by unanimous vote.

Judge-Executive Donnie Carroll said the people have spoken and are willing to volunteer and work on generating private and corporate sponsorship to launch the project.

“People are saying they want it, and our challenge is to be open to find people that can do that,” Carroll said. “It would be awesome — the county is open to that.”

The $4 million plan has been a topic of discussion for the past decade. There was some discussion to initially develop five sports fields at the site that could be utilized for soccer and football simultaneously, and then add additional playing fields over time.
