Cedar Park City Council approved three economic development and land agreements Sept. 23 for the project. The Perfect Game complex is expected to generate $20 million in revenue for Cedar Park over 10 years from lease payments, sales tax and hotel occupancy tax, according to the city.
Cedar Park officials project that when complete, the new 80-acre complex will bring up to 750,000 visitors annually.
The news from Cedar Park regarding Perfect Game comes three months after the project was initially expected to be complete in Hutto, which was May 31 of this year.
Hutto entered into an agreement with Perfect Game developer Wolverine Interests, LLC on Apr. 29, 2019. Soon after, the city and developer were entangled in legal disputes centered on disagreements between Wolverine and former Hutto City Manager Odis Jones.
Those disputes played a role in Hutto officials announcing a new developer for the project, Legacy Development, in September 2019.
Allison Strupeck, communications manager for the city of Hutto, said in a Sept. 24 statement that the project was not right for Hutto, and city officials are excited about Perfect Game moving forward in Cedar Park.
"This project will positively impact Williamson County, which is on the rise in the region," Strupeck said. "Hutto is excited to be part of this regional economic development that benefits all of our communities."
