CANTON, Ohio (AP) — The governing board of a northeast Ohio port authority has unanimously approved an agreement that sets the framework for the first phase of development near the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The Repository newspaper in Canton reports (http://bit.ly/1fVzxPX ) Tuesday’s approval sets the structure for the project’s first phase. That includes the $80 million reconstruction of Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, conversion of Don Scott field into youth football fields, and improvements to the parking lot at McKinley High School. The plans are all part of the proposed “Hall of Fame Village.”
An attorney for the Stark County Port Authority, Sam Simmerman, says work needs to start in order to meet deadlines to have the first phase completed prior to next year’s Hall of Fame enshrinement.
