City to begin talks on future of Ottawa Stadium

"Our idea is to have teams use the field during the day like any other field in the city."

 

Ottawa residents may one day soon be able to enjoy the Ottawa Stadium.

 

Councillor Bob Monette and Acting Mayor Doug Thompson say on Monday they are meeting with Miles Wolff from the Can-Am league, city staff and lawyers to see what can be done to allow residents of Ottawa can use this field.

 

"Recognizing the contractual agreement that exists between the city and Ottawa Pro Baseball, our idea is to have teams use the field during the day like any other field in the city, mitigating the need for Hydro reducing unnecessary expenses and simplifying a resolution," a press release from Monette and Thompson says.

 

"This is a field of dreams and we will be doing everything in our power to see this diamond used and dreams made a reality for teams across the city."

The Can-Am League ended the Ottawa Voyageurs last spring.
