The economic incentive development agreement with the company stipulates that over $20.2 million in site improvements must be made to obtain the full grant. Per city documents, the company can obtain a prorated amount of the more than $1.97 million grant based on the value of improvements.

According to city documents, planned improvements can include:
  • A pickleball court
  • Outdoor fireplace or fire pit and other site amenities
