A Sports Facility: Do we need one?

Traveling youth sports is a big industry with a lot of money involved. Leaders with the city of Paducah, and McCracken County say we are losing out on some of that money.

People involved with local youth sports say the facilities we have aren’t adequate enough to host tournaments. That’s why local government leaders are proposing that Paducah build a sports facility to host tournaments and help the community grow. Those leaders look to other cities that have built sports facilities as examples of what they would like to see built in Paducah.

Thursday, May 16, on Local 6 at 10, we’ll take a look at proposed plans to build a sports facility in Paducah, how much it would cost, and if it would really help the area grow.
