GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The Green Bay Packers are preparing to announce what they plan to do with the land the team owns near Lambeau Field in what they’re calling the Titletown District.

The team has called a news conference for 11:45 a.m. Thursday. Team president Mark Murphy and vice-president Ed Policy will be joined by representatives from the businesses involved and community leaders.

The announcement gave no details of the development plans, and Packers spokesman Aaron Popkey declined to comment Wednesday evening.

The Packers own around 65 acres of land near Lambeau Field that’s zoned for commercial use. The area includes a popular Cabela’s sporting goods store. The Packers have demolished a number of other buildings in the area including a former Kmart.
