HURRICANE, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The city of Hurricane is another step closer to having new park space.

City Council heard first reading Monday of an ordinance to annex 42 acres of land -- meaning that land could become part of Hurricane's city limits.

Mayor Scott Edwards says the next step is bringing an engineering crew out to survey the land. Better entrances and traffic plans for the park are among the top goals. City officials expect a lot of visitors once it's complete.

"It's not just a sporting park, it's just a general park," Edwards said. "We'll have gazebos and walking trails park benches -- all of the stuff you would think of in a park. Trees and shade, all those things where a family can take their kids and spend the day."

Edwards says the land also will be used for ball fields including soccer, baseball, softball and football.
