Miami-Dade County on Verge of Ballpark Groundbreaking

MIAMI (AP) Officials said Miami-Dade County is about a month away from groundbreaking on a new ballpark for the Florida Marlins.

This comes just days after the team’s $515 million financing plan received a needed vote from county commissioners — and a favorable court ruling the same day.

County government had planned to issue bonds to bankroll the stadium, until two separate hurdles surfaced nearly in unison. One required city and county government to re-approve contract financing fine print. The other involved a citizen lawsuit seeking an injunction to block the financing plan. Each hurdle was cleared June 19.

Miami-Dade County plans to issue construction bonds for the stadium in late June, with a groundbreaking ceremony tentatively set for July 18.
