Tax abatement for Team Pineapple Properties and the new Ball Sports Complex was approved by the Angola Common Council after the proposal had received a bumpy start.

The council approved the resolution declaring the Ball Sports property, at 200 Intertech Pkwy., an economic revitalization area.

Developer and former Olympian and professional volleyball player Lloy Ball thanked everyone who has worked on the project for helping him out.

These thanks included to the city for making the process “not that painful” and the media for the continued coverage of the project, he said.

“This is for the kids, I’m doing it for them,” he said.

There were many students and adults in council chambers to support Ball.

Ball laid out the economic impact projected in the first year alone of the building, saying it has already dedicated 20 weekends alone to events in 2018, the year the facility is expected to open.

“The events planned will draw over 20,000 people alone in the first year visiting Angola,” said Ball.

State Rep. Denny Zent, R-Angola, thanked the council for what they’ve done so far for Ball’s project.

“It’s an exciting time up here, ” Zent said.

The resolution was passed unanimously, with many remarks about the excitement for the project coming to the community.
