The ball is in Lee County’s court when it comes to the future of a proposed sports complex in western Fort Madison.
The $3.4-million project calls for the construction of three soccer/football fields and three baseball/softball diamonds near Fort Madison Community Hospital. Some of the land is being donated for the complex while the rest is being leased.
Public and private donations have crossed the $2.4-million mark. That includes $500,000 over the next two years from the city of Fort Madison.
