Stream Fox 17 newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5 am and News at 9 pm.

A gathering of four neighborhoods as the plan for the Sulphur Dell ballpark project moves forward.
   
Just one month remains until metro hopes for final approval but many questions are still on the table.

Bill Pittenger is concerned most about a change in traffic in his neighborhood that would likely come with the building of a new ballpark.

The Sulphur Dell stadium would seat about 10-thousand people and could possibly close off 4th Avenue to traffic.

Despite Pittenger's concerns though, he's among four neighborhood associations who support this project.

He's in this Saturday meeting for more answers on not just traffic but financing, design, development and the legal process through metro government.

Those in the capitol district believe history will repeat itself and the project will generate more development.

For nearly 100 years, people came to the old Sulphur Dell stadium to watch games.

Nashville Sounds fans would watch 72 games a year here.

The ballpark is estimated to be a 40-million dollar project.
   
It's a metro government public-private partnership that the city says would pay for itself.
