At this week’s council meeting a partnership between the city and Fields of Our Future Incorporated was approved. According to Pella City Administrator Mike Nardini the foundation has already raised approximately 3.5 million dollars for the sports park. The complex is being modeled on the Lacy Sports Park in Oskaloosa, and would have room for expansion on the property. Nardini says that the city’s portion of the funding will come from the local option tax passed last year. The Pella Sports Park project has an overall budget of six million dollars.
