Orlando moves planned MLS stadium

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Orlando's mayor says the city is dropping eminent domain proceedings against a church that was holding up construction of a new downtown Major League Soccer stadium.

Mayor Buddy Dyer announced the decision Monday. The city is instead purchasing an additional parcel of land that will allow it to move the location of the new stadium one block west of the original site, leaving Faith Deliverance Temple untouched.

Church officials said last month they didn't want to sell their property, which sat in the middle of the planned development for the $100 million stadium.

The city filed eminent domain proceedings in May. It had offered the church as much as $4 million for its land, but it was rejected.

Orlando City Soccer Club plans to open the stadium in 2016.
