JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - Residents of Jamestown have approved a 1 percent sales tax to help fund a multimillion-dollar activity center.

KSJB reports that unofficial results show 60 percent of the nearly 3,000 voters in Tuesday’s election favored the tax, which will fund the $28.6 million first phase of the Two Rivers Activity Center.

The 172,000-square-foot facility will house an aquatic center, a childcare facility, three basketball courts, a walking and jogging track, a weight training area and an indoor turf field under a dome.

A proposed second phase would expand the facility for a final estimated cost of $40 million.
