GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP/WBOC)- Developers of a sports complex proposed for Sussex County, Del. expect to bring their proposal to the Georgetown planning commission next month.

Town Manager Gene Dvornick says the $4 million project could be a great economic development opportunity for the area. 

Businessman Joseph Schell is donating more than 50 acres to build the complex on Sand Hill Road just off Route 9 in Georgetown. It would include eight multi-use fields for sports like soccer and lacrosse, a cross-country course and about a dozen pickle ball courts.

Sussex County is being asked to fund about $1.5 million of the project.

Schell told WBOC in July that if Georgetown approves the plans, the complex will open in the fall of 2018.
