HAMMOND, Ind. (AP) - The city of Hammond is spending $25,000 to determine if it needs a state-of-the-art community recreation center.

The northwestern Indiana city will look at the local market to see if such a center is needed. If so, the city will move forward with the study’s second phase, also costing $25,000, to determine its financial feasibility.

The (Munster) Times reports (https://bit.ly/1NaCMfz ) that if the City Council decides to move forward with the center, it might seek to finance it with a loan of $8 million to $9 million from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. City officials have estimated the cost for land acquisition and construction could be as high as $15 million.
