The City Council will discuss the Elco Dress site Wednesday night at City Hall. 

The matter is expected to be sent to the Special Committee on Soccer Fields and the Mayor’s Office. 

Alves says he’s also discussing with the state, the possibility of using land off Route 18 for a soccer field as well.
