Palm Beach County has approved $108 million in public funding for a two-team, $135 million complex for the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros.
However, there is currently no site for the project.
The vote doesn't mean a complex will definitely be built. The teams must now find a site somewhere in Palm Beach County, which also houses a facility shared by the St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins in Jupiter.
"The Board of Commissioners took a major step today toward keeping the tradition of major league baseball's spring training in Palm Beach County and on the east coast of Florida," the Nationals and Astros said in a joint written statement.
"The teams will now work to find a location here in Palm Beach County that will serve our needs, those of the youth sports commission and area tourism for decades to come. We will continue our efforts to accomplish that goal."
