WaPo: Nationals & Astros Take Another Step Toward West Palm Beach Spring Training Site

The Nationals and Astros made incremental progress toward a joint spring training home Monday night when the West Palm Beach City Commission approved a non-binding agreement with West Palm Beach County to swap the land to be used for the site. Progress continued Tuesday morning when the Palm Beach County Commission voted 6 to 1 to approve the term sheet, according to the Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post.

The terms of the agreement include the environmental provisions required for the project to move forward. Palm Beach County, which would trade 1.8 acres of downtown land to the city for the 143.3 acre former landfill on which the facility is to be built, agreed to that swap with its vote Tuesday morning.
.  .  .
If the facility does materialize, the Nationals will join the Astros, Mets, Marlins and Cardinals as teams training on the state’s East Coast, reducing travel and giving the other teams in the area reason to continue training there.

That’s considerably south of where the Nationals & Astros are now, but closer to the other teams training on Florida’s East Coast.
