WZFG News has learned that the Fargo Park District is in negotiations on a plot of land that would be the home to a 100-acre sports complex in South Fargo. Fargo Park District Executive Director Joel Vettel tells the Need To Know Morning Show that the property is south of the Wal-Mart Supercenter on 52nd Avenue along I-29, north of a small cemetery. That location was selected from a group of 8 sites, largely because of visibility and accessibility from major roadways. Vettel says there is no agreement yet, but that the land owners are "wonderful people with a very strong interest in making something happen." Sanford Health is expected to be the anchor tenant, in a facility similar to the Pentagon Complex in Sioux Falls. The project would have indoor turf, sport courts, and ice, and is expected to cost more than $50 million, with the Park District's contribution coming primarily from the sale of land at the Anderson softball complex along 45th Street South in Fargo. Vettel says the appraised value, of that land, will be determined in the next 2 weeks and that the district plans to put the land on the market in the next month. Vettel says no date has been set for a formal announcement of the project, but he's "very confident" that the project will come together, and that it would be "one of the greatest projects in the history of the city."
