ANSONIA — A new soccer field on Olson Drive may be ready just in time for soccer team tryouts next fall. It all depends on the weather.

“We’re hoping by March, April, when the winter is over and to be in a position to begin to build the facilities,” developer John Guedes said.

The facilities in Gueses’  plan is for a 39,000-square-foot indoor soccer facility, and an outdoor soccer field, plus a second 49,000-square-foot building to train basketball players, according to minutes from a previous August planning and zoning meeting. The two facilities will both have a first floor and a mezzanine, with bleachers. There development will have 247 parking spaces.

The Nov. 28 approval for construction of the multi-use sports complex puts to an end months of controversy which included contentious public meetings and a lawsuit.

Corporation Counsel John Marini said the new sports complex will be a draw for the city.

“We think this project is going to bring Ansonia itself, more positive recognition,” Marini said.
