FRISCO (CBSDFW.COM) - The Dallas Cowboys are moving to Frisco. The official announcement is set to come early Tuesday afternoon, but details are already out about the NFL franchise’s new development plans in Collin County. The project is scheduled to open in 2016, further cementing the city’s position as a sports Mecca with a deal designed to make the Frisco complex a year-round draw.

The Frisco City Council approved the $110 million construction project Monday night. It will be financed through current sales tax revenue.

The deal includes an indoor practice field which will also be the home stadium for all Frisco high schools. The Cowboys have agreed to pay for the operating and maintenance costs of the facility, which Frisco plans to surround with a huge entertainment district, turning the area into a major North Texas tourist attraction.

Some of the ideas already being kicked around for the entertainment portion of the project include concert venues, luxury hotels, shopping centers and restaurants. “This is an exciting time for the City of Frisco,” said Mayor Maher Maso on Monday morning, hours before the deal had even been approved.

An analyst told the Frisco City Council on Monday night that the project could bring 4,500 jobs to the city and add nearly $23.5 billion to the local economy over the next 13 years. “You know, I’ve always thought every development we have is a huge development,” Maso said, “but this really takes the cake from the perspective.”

The new Cowboys headquarters and practice facility will be located along a 91-acre tract at the intersection of the Dallas North Tollway and Warren Parkway. Further details about the gameplan are expected to be announced at a press conference on Tuesday.

Jerry Jones has not commented on the deal, but some Cowboys players are already looking forward to the new Frisco facility.

“It’ll be right down the road from me. It’ll be a 10-minute drive for me, so it’d be exciting,” said defensive tackle Jason Hatcher at practice on Monday. “Hopefully I’m still here.”

“Mr. Jones is an awesome businessman. He knows how to work it and he wants the best for us,” added cornerback Brandon Carr. “I mean, we have, I think, the best stadium in all of the world and he wants to have the new Valley Ranch for us to have the same type of pleasures. I mean, it’s going to be all good once they finally give us the full gameplan.”

The Cowboys will be abandoning their current facilities after spending the past 28 years at Valley Ranch. Frisco is already home to the Texas Rangers baseball farm team, the FC Dallas soccer team, the Dallas Mavericks basketball development team and the practice ice rink for the Dallas Stars hockey team.
