ACC president John Masterson took his school’s plans to build a new Activity Center before Allen County commissioners on Tuesday morning in an effort to gauge interest in a potential partnership.

“When you go after a project this big you want to have partnerships,” Masterson said. “I am sure there are things you guys have been thinking about, some things the city has been thinking about, needs that we all have. This is an opportunity for all of us to come together and solve these problems and do it less expensively for each one of us. But also have a bigger, nicer facility for all of us.”

Masterson said the project, which will include a 200-meter indoor track, and a storm shelter, could cost anywhere from $12 million to $24 million, depending on whether it has a pool.
