Palm Beach County commissioners are slated to vote on whether to allocate $90 million in hotel bed taxes for a spring training facility for two Major League Baseball teams.

The Houston Astros and Washington Nationals are willing to sign 30-year agreements for a $140 million, 6,500-seat stadium in West Palm Beach. During Tuesday’s meeting, commissioners are expected to decide if they agree with the approval of the bed tax allocation by the county’s Tourist Development Council. If so, a 30-year commitment to give $3 million in annual hotel tax revenue for the stadium would be made.

A 160-acre former landfill site south of 45th Street between Military Trail and Haverhill Road is being proposed for the stadium, according to the South Florida Business Journal. The Astros and Nationals also want $50 million in tax incentives from the state. They are willing to pay $2.1 million in rent and another $3 million for maintenance.
