TDC Plans to Expand Frank Brown

The Tourist Development Council is planning its next move to bring more sporting events to the area.

Sports and Special Events Vice President Richard Sanders told board members Tuesday the area is losing opportunities to bring in some big money because Frank Brown park just isn't big enough.

He says sports events bring more than 50 million dollars into the local economy every year but Sanders says it could be much more if the sports venues were enlarged and a year round indoor sports facility was added.

The board approved a motion to approach the St. Joe Company about acquiring the 400 acres of land that would be needed to expand.
