Southwest Iowa athletes may soon benefit from a new indoor turf facility. The multi-sport complex would exist within a 75,000 square foot building. It will be located south of 23rd Avenue in the Mid-America Center entertainment district. The property will sit south and west of Quaker Steak and Lube.
The Iowa West Foundation and other grant sources would fund the $7 million multi-sports complex which is pending approvals by the Council Bluffs Planning Commission and the City Council. The sports complex will be operated and managed by the Council Bluffs Soccer Club.
The complex is slated to have an artificial youth regulation turf. The field would be separated into multiple small fields to support multiple soccer matches.
Other sports that can be played on the intended field would include softball, flag football, and youth baseball just to name a few. Existing plans include 160 parking spaces.
Upon completion, the plex would be the perfect home for young athletes and will support year-round skill development and conditioning.
Construction is set to begin in spring 2019 upon approval by the authorized bodies. The proposed facility would open as early as next December.
