DUNEDIN - City officials are recommending an $81 million project that includes renovations to Florida Auto Exchange Stadium on Douglas Avenue as part of their commitment to keeping the Toronto Blue Jays training activities in Dunedin.

A Sept. 26 City Commission workshop will be the first time in two years that city officials’ discussions regarding the Toronto Blue Jays will be discussed publicly with city commissioners and residents.

Among the issues is the location of the stadium. As a result of discussions that began this year with Toronto Blue Jays President Mark Shapiro, city officials are recommending that the “game day stadium” be retained at the existing site on Douglas Avenue with expanded training facilities at the Vanech/Englebert training site on Solan Avenue.
