Plans are in the works to build a new athletic facility for the Ottumwa school district. Architects updated the Ottumwa school board members on the $4.5 million project earlier this week.
According to Ottumwa Activities Director, Scott Maas, the new facility will have a gymnasium large enough for two basketball courts or three volleyball courts, as well as a new wrestling room, locker rooms, PE office, and storage. The addition being added to the south side of the middle school.
They are looking forward to having it ready to go by January of 2023. Maas says it should really help their athletic teams grades 7-12.
