The City of North Mankato is taking the next step in hopes of building new athletic facilities.

John Harrenstein says it will be paid for with a mix of the local option sales tax and asking the legislature for matching funds.

He says it will build on the success of Caswell Park.

The next meeting will be on February 25th as a work session to discuss the feasibility of the project.

Mayor Dehen estimated that the ask to the legislature would be around 10-13 million dollars.
