Plans for New Wirth Park Sports Center Delayed

The Southwest Journal Reported that an issue with the “silent sports center” contract delayed next steps.

In an article Friday, the Southwest Journal reported that an contract issue between the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Loppet Foundation set back plans for a new Theodore Wirth Park sports center.

Writer Nick Halter said that the Loppet Foundation would be responsible for raising $3 million by the end of 2014 for a center that would house ski rentals and bike rentals. The facility would also have a conference room, great room and concession stand, according to the article.

The Wirth Golf Course clubhouse would be knocked down in order to build the welcome center, but the Southwest Journal said building plans are delayed. On the board’s most recent agenda, an item was removed because commissioners want “issues addressed in a memorandum of understanding,” according to the article.
