Ideas sought for Ada's new sports complex

Ada —      The firm developing Ada’s new multipurpose sports complex wants to know what people want to see at the complex.

     The focus groups said they thought Ada should have a variety of sports venues, including game fields, a field house and a competitive indoor swimming pool, said GreenPlay principal Pat O’Toole. But he noted Ada has only $4 million to spend on the project, which includes the cost of buying land and preparing the site.
