SALINA, Kansas – The city of Salina is working on revitalizing downtown starting with a $9 million dollar fieldhouse.
The fieldhouse will be used for youth tournaments and have indoor basketball, volleyball courts as well as turf for indoor soccer. The city wants to use it for youth programs and bring in youth tournaments to the city.
The city of Salina estimates that the total downtown project will cost $100 million. It will be paid for through private investments. The city will pay to better streets and parking lots through star-bonds.
“It’s really exciting because this is an opportunity that we have as a community to compliment private investment by local people and local business,” said Jason Gage, the Salina City Manager.
Other projects coming down the pipeline include a hotel downtown and a bowling alley.
