Boca Residents Speak Out Against Spring Training Facility

The debate about where to build a Baseball Spring Training Complex in Palm Beach County continues. 

Earlier this week we told you that a developer is pushing Boca Raton as an alternative to Palm Beach Gardens, which had asked the county to consider other sites for the Houston Astros and Toronto Blue Jays.  But some residents near Spanish River Boulevard, west of I-95 say they don't want a facility in their backyards either. 

Their concerns  include noise, traffic and property values. 

The Boca Vice Mayor is asking the city staff to look into it.  County leaders say bringing more Major League teams to the area will mean more tourism dollars.
