ELK POINT, S.D. (KTIV) -
Voters in Elk Point, South Dakota will soon decide whether to build a new community center.
The current facility is 45 years-old and also serves as the country club. Some feel it's outdated and too small.
The current proposal from the city and the Recreation Development Association calls for a new building on the existing site, at a cost of about one-million dollars. Some of the work and equipment will be donated.
Monday night city leaders discussed the plans with voters, showed them the options, and received their input on what they would like to see.
"Elk Point would benefit from a community building, but it should be such that the community can use for activities, rather than one large room," says Louie DeSmet from Elk Point.
The vote on the Elk Point community center is set for August 14th.
