Hamilton County and the City of Chattanooga are proposing a plan to revitalize the South Broad District, including the long empty US Pipe and Wheland Foundry site. The centerpiece of this plan is the construction of a new, publicly owned baseball stadium, using a combination of private investment and public tax incentives. This plan will be put to a vote by the county commission on August 3rd, and the city council on August 9th.
