City of Bozeman lends $1.7M for sports complex

BOZEMAN, Mont. —
The city of Bozeman will loan close to $1.7 million to the Bozeman Sports Park Foundation. The loan will be used to install artificial turf fields at the Bozeman Sports Park. The decision was made at Monday night’s city commission meeting.

Construction on the park started last year. Total cost for the project is expected to be $20 million. The city has already contributed $8.4 million through the Trails, Open Space and Parks bond.

City Commissioner Terry Cunningham said the loan is important to the health and well being of city residents.
