Supporters of the proposed Wahpeton Recreation Center vowed they would not give up on the idea. Three months after the project appeared to be halted by election results, there’s interest in a new attempt that would be slower-moving and possibly easier to support.

While no action was taken at a Monday, Jan. 10 meeting of the Wahpeton Finance and Personnel Committee, there was discussion on everything from possible feasibility and economic impact studies, having guaranteed private funds before a public vote to the idea of the city now leading the project. As of Monday, the center is not expected to be on the ballot for the next city elections in June.
