Nebraska $125M sports complex opening delayed, again
LA VISTA, Neb. (AP) - A proposed multimillion dollar sports complex that backers hope will lure major tournaments to a small eastern Nebraska city is facing yet more construction delays.
The Omaha World-Herald reports that the Nebraska Multisport Complex in La Vista, just southwest of Omaha, has missed its mid-June opening deadline and is now expected to partially open next spring. The project was first announced in 2015 with an expected open date in 2017.
Mike Cassling is chairman of the complex's board of directors. Cassling says rainy weather and a possible redesign of portions of the $125 million endeavor have stalled the project. He worries that the delays are costing the complex millions of dollars due to missed tournaments.
The complex is expected to feature 12 artificial turf fields, and an Olympic-size pool and tennis courts.
