Thompson Presents $2 Million Check to City of Clearlake for Burns Valley Sports Complex and Recreation Center

Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-04) presented a check for $2,000,000 to the City of Clearlake for the Clearlake Burns Valley Sports Complex and Recreation Center project. This funding was secured in the Fiscal Year 2023 government funding bill.

“The construction of the Burns Valley Sports Complex and Recreation Center will encourage healthier living and stimulate our local economy through youth sports, jobs, increased visitors, and additional hotel room stays,” said Thompson. “I was proud to work with Lake County officials to identify the need for this funding. This project is going to modernize our community, encourage a healthier lifestyle, and boost economic growth for our region.”

“This is a project that will have dramatic and long-lasting impacts on our community. Encouraging a healthy lifestyle, safe activities for your youth, and providing a draw for visitors from outside our region are just a few of the benefits of this impact project. We are so grateful for the support of Congressman Thompson and the various agencies that will make this project a reality,” said Mayor Russ Perdock.

The full property will include a small amount of retail space, a new public works corporation yard (which will also serve as the City’s new hub for disaster and emergency response), an 80-unit affordable housing project, and the sports complex and recreation center.

The sports complex will include a new Little League/softball/baseball complex, soccer fields and an approximately 20,000 sq. ft. recreation center.
