According to The Mountain Press, Gatlinburg city officials are moving forward with tentative plans to locate a youth soccer, volleyball, and basketball sports complex within the city. Sevier county commissioners and the board of education gave the idea positive feedback after a meeting last Tuesday evening.
The proposed site plan shows that the $25 million complex would be located off Highway 321 in land surrounding Gatlinburg-Pittman High School.
The 79,000 square-foot indoor sports complex would include five basketball courts and the offices needed to run the facility. Outside, there would be eight full-size soccer fields.
