The Pella City Council made decisions on the Pella Sports Park Project at their meeting last week. The council decided on an engineering firm for the design of the project. Civil Design Advantage of Grimes, Iowa was chosen for both their price and experience designing similar sports parks. City Administrator Mike Nardini explains that Pella has partnered with Fields of Our Future to fund the project, adding that city staff and Fields of Our Future have worked hard to get the project in motion. Construction, expected to begin in the Summer of 2013, will be overseen by Civil Design Advantage as well. The Sports Park is expected to be ready for use by the first baseball games of 2014.
