Hilliard has emerged as the likely site of a $19.5 million Columbus Crew practice facility and central Ohio youth soccer complex.
An official with Pizzuti Cos., which is representing the Crew in selecting a location for the planned project, said a 150-acre parcel of land next to Hilliard Municipal Park is being considered for the project. It would include indoor and outdoor practice pitches for the Crew and eight lighted fields for youth-league players.
Shannon Hamons, Pizzuti’s director of special projects, said a decision should be made by the end of June. He said the Crew also is considering locations in Columbus and Delaware County.
