On June 12, according to a 2013 article by the Lake City Journal titled “First phase of $3-million Southside Sports Complex renovation approved by County Commission and TDC”, the Southside Sports Complex is undergoing construction work as the Columbia County Tourist Development Authority and the Board of County Commissioners have approved Phase 1 of a renovation project.

The sports complex, located in Lake City, Florida, will be improved in a variety of ways. According to the article by the Lake City Journal, the current work being done is just part one of a four phase plan. The first phase revolves around upgrading bleachers and sidewalks, repairing playing fields, installing a pump station, and building new restrooms and concession stands so that they are more easily accessible to spectators who show up for large tournaments.

The article cites county reports that estimate the costs of the first phase to total $871,904. The total four phase project cost is estimated to be $3 million, with the country and the Columbia County Tourist Development Council contributing a portion of the total cost. The date for completion of all four phases has not been finalized yet.
