The land involves the former Fraser Paper site that has been vacant since the mill was demolished three years ago.
The volleyball complex is expected to draw between 300 to 500 people a day and provide about 50 jobs during peak times, officials said. The land deal would include a one-year moratorium on the city’s sale of any acreage on site to another business that operates in the food or beverage industry.
Approval would set Spike-It on an aggressive course to open its facility by Oct. 1, 2019, said Larry Roberts, a company partner.

Outdoor facilities would feature eight sand courts, showers, restrooms, a bar with food service and a 36-foot wide deck, officials said.
