Lawmakers Visit Plymouth Creek Center to Hear Bonding Request
Plymouth wants to remodel, and expand, its Plymouth Creek Center. Tuesday, state lawmakers got a closer look at the center and why it would be a good candidate for state bonding dollars. Representative Ginny Klevorn and Senator Paul Anderson are backing a request for 15 million of those dollars to help offset the $52 million project cost.
The city says the Plymouth Creek Center is a regional draw, attracting more than 300,000 visitors a year. The renovation would bring new sport courts, refreshed meeting and theater spaces, and a significantly larger footprint for the building.
“Any investment in this region, in this community of Plymouth is gonna pay many dividends for our region, and our state, and our country,” said Anderson.
A $15 million request is included in the governor’s bonding proposal that he announced about a week ago. Right now, the city plans to move forward on the Plymouth Creek Center project, with construction estimated to begin in late summer.
