Seminole County is considering a property near Orlando-Sanford International Airport for  planned sports complex.

County commissioners directed their staff to move toward acquiring land on  East Lake Mary Boulevard, across from the airport, said Joe Abel, the county's director of leisure services.

The County Commission will revisit the issue and could approve the purchase of the parcel, which is east of State Road 417.

The sports complex would include softball diamonds, baseball as well as multi-use fields.
