McALESTER, Okla. (AP) - The Choctaw Nation has broken ground on a new $10 million tribal complex in McAlester.

Choctaw Chief Gary Batton joined state and local leaders Tuesday to mark the beginning of the project, which calls for an early childhood education building, a community center, a food distribution center and a wellness center.

The complex is being built at McAlester’s South Side Industrial Park. The tribe bought the property from McAlester for $1.3 million.

The McAlester News-Capital reports (https://bit.ly/1vgSlLD ) that the childhood education center is scheduled to be ready by next July, with the other three buildings to be completed by September 2015.
