The All Star Ballpark Heaven Project has been a concept in our community’s lives for a year now.  Studies, presentations and discussions have been heard by many residents, business owners, community leaders, employees and employers.  Mike & Denise Stillman have addressed many questions that the community had with professionalism and enthusiasm.  With the issues addressed, it is time to move forward and embrace the benefits that this project will provide.  

A $38 million investment in a community brings direct and indirect benefits to the community, counties and to the State of Iowa.  The 84 direct jobs the ballpark will provide are needed and needed now.  The Dyersville Area Chamber of Commerce has received many phone calls and inquiries about these jobs and where to submit resumes.  If you were at the presentation at the Social Center in July, you will remember that these are not minimum wage jobs.  These jobs are about economic growth, quality of life and revenue generation.

As we talk to business owners throughout town, excited conversations lead to filling the store fronts and additional customers this project will bring.  Just ask a business owner what 25, 50 or 100-plus additional customers would do for their business?  They would welcome them with open arms!  The Chamber is receiving phone calls of new businesses wanting to open stores and existing business are inquiring how their services could be utilized.  These are the businesses that support our schools, hospitals and local charities through donations.  This collaborative effort ensures local growth and progression of our area.     

As the Stillman’s continue with the All Star Ballpark Heaven Project, we ask everyone to support, welcome and continue the positive talks as we slide into home.
