Fieldhouse Project Update

After gathering input from area leaders and athletic coaches in the month of December, group members involved with the Fieldhouse Project, a project to build a new sports facility in Manhattan, are pleased with the results of a survey.

Approximately 2,300 people took the survey and the majority noted that they would support the project with a combination of fees and taxes, which surprised Fieldhouse Project chair Gail Urban.

Urban says the project is currently a non-profit corporation in the early stages of applying with the IRS for 501C3 status and needs to raise $100,000 to hire Sport Facility Advisory Incorporated out of Florida to begin the next step in the process.

Anyone interested in joining the advisory group’s efforts can email Urban at
