Bettendorf Considers Sports Complex
Sports, fitness, and recreation will be the focus Monday night for the Bettendorf city council. A consultant, Sports Facility Advisors, will present results of two feasibility studies.
One was a study of the Life Fitness Center, Splash Landing, and community center, while the second looked at the possibility of building a sports complex near the intersection of I-80 and Middle Road.
Economic Development Director, Jeff Reiter, says the sports complex might be used for basketball, soccer, volleyball, wrestling, and other indoor sports.
Originally hockey was included in the proposed sports complex, but Reiter says it was dropped because it would be too expensive.
The results of the study might help city leaders decide sometime in the future whether to go head with the project.
