LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ Lawrence city commissioners have approved agreements for a city-owned recreation center and tax abatements for a larger project that will include athletic facilities for the University of Kansas.
The commissioners Tuesday night approved a development agreement for a $25 million Rock Chalk recreation center. And they approved an ordinance to give a 100 percent property tax abatement for the next 10 years for the larger project, which includes privately owned athletic facilities for the university.
The commission approved the property tax abatement even after its key advisory board on economic development failed to recommend it earlier Tuesday.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/XVUJpB ) the larger Rock Chalk Park project will include track and field, soccer and softball stadiums for the university.
