BELLE PLAINE (KWWL) -  A $96,000 Vision Iowa grant was awarded to Belle Plaine Wednesday for the construction of a new aquatic center. 

"This aquatic center will be a great addition to Belle Plaine," said Vision Iowa Board Chairwoman Regenia Bailey. "Construction will start very soon, and residents should be able to enjoy the new facility next summer."

This $2,776,000 project includes the construction of a 6,826-square-foot pool area, a lazy river, water slide, one- and three-meter diving boards, play structures, bathhouse, concession area, mechanical and storage building and sunbathing area.

The award is contingent upon completion of fundraising in 30 days.

The Vision Iowa Program provides financial incentives to communities for the construction of recreational, cultural, educational or entertainment facilities that enhance the quality of life in Iowa. Currently, 322 CAT awards have been granted by the board, totaling $120,090,405.
