PADUCAH, Ky. - The Paducah City Commission has agreed to proceed with the sale of property that was planned for a sports complex.

The property is located on Sheehan Bridge Road.

In December 2009, the City Commission approved a purchase of 165 acres of land to construct a sports park. At the time, there was a private fundraising effort with a goal of $1,000,000 to assist the city in the purchase of the property and park development.

The Commission said due to the tight economy, the fundraising goal was not achieved.
