(Hartford, Conn./CBS Connecticut) - Bids are being solicited by the city of hartford for potential developers of a minor baseball stadium in the downtown north area.

This, after city officials reversed field in their plans amidst a public outcry against spending millions in bonding to pay for a new home for the New Britain Rock Cats.

Traffic is among the other concerns that have arisen.

Segarra admits there will be additional traffic but he also says the city is not soley banking on the stadium as part of its revitalization.

He says it’s part of an overall development plan that includes other projects.

Segarra tells WTIC the stadium would go hand-in-hand with other projects like UConn’s relocation to the capitol city as well as development along Front Street.
