Around 100 residents and community leaders attended a public forum at Allen Community College Monday night to discuss the new activities building being proposed at the college’s Iola campus.
Prior to the meeting, college officials had developed a plan regarding their vision for the facility, which includes a 200-meter indoor track and sports field, stadium seating and weight rooms.
“We have in our mind what we want to do,” said Neal Barclay, president of ACC board of trustees. “We just wanted to see if there was something that we could do bigger and better that would involve everybody in Allen County.”
