On Tuesday, Sep. 7th, the Leeds City Council authorized a non-binding letter of intent describing a potential agreement for the development of a sports complex—after deliberating for over an hour. The agreement says that the city intends to develop the project around Exit 140 of U.S. Highway 20.

The letter will “provide a nonbinding catalyst” to be in line with more agreements and legal requirements to follow. According to The Trussville Tribune, Mayor David Miller expressed his approval of the project.

“I think this starts the ball rolling on something that’s going to be absolutely game-changing for the City of Leeds.”

Mayor Miller could only spare a few details on the resolution but he stated that as this agreement gets more publicity (and they have more definitions), everybody will be excited that the city started down this path.
