Wichita planning sports, entertainment complex


WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita is planning a multimillion dollar sports and entertainment complex that it hopes will draw tournaments and visitors from across the country.

Final details are not complete but developers say work could begin late this summer on the GoodSports complex, with opening sometime next summer.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/18q3Nh1 ) the last obstacle for the $122 million sales tax and revenue bond project will go before the Wichita City Council Aug. 6. The council is expected to approve a special sales tax to finance a highway interchange that will be a key entrance for the complex.

The first phase will be anchored by GoodSports Fieldhouse, a 65,000-square-foot facility. Efforts also are underway to attract retailers to the area.
