Economic Impact from Prospect Meadows
Linn County will host more than 60,000 visitors annually thanks to tournaments at Prospect Meadows. These visitors will inject an estimated $20 million dollars of direct spending into the Linn County economy. Prospect Meadows has already directly impacted new business development with the construction of new hotels and restaurants. Prospect Meadows will certainly be the reason for further development in the future.
The impact of Prospect Meadows on our economy will be astronomical but the impact on the quality of life in Linn County will be even greater. Much of the $20 million dollars in annual direct spending will go directly to quality of life assets such as attractions, retailers, restaurants and entertainment. This massive amount of additional support will allow those assets to survive, grow and thrive; while at the same time paving the way for exciting new assets to come online.
Residents of Linn County will also benefit from having a world-class baseball and softball complex in our backyard, where our children will enjoy the game that teaches valuable lifelong lessons.
Prospect Meadows is especially excited about the Miracle Field which will allow children with special needs the opportunity to experience our national pastime as well as expanding the League of Dreams program to 4th, 5th, and 6th graders for under-served children in Linn County.
