The grass roots project conducted by the Norwalk Boosters to construct the Norwalk Truckers All-Sports Complex has received a big boost from the Geotrac Foundation.
"The boosters want to thank the Geotrac Foundation for their $50,000 grant. This becomes the third large gift for the project and puts the construction on schedule for a spring starting date. The goal for the project is $750,000 and is divided into the actual building construction ($450,000), with inside finishing at $300,000," said Joe Widman, chairman of the sports complex committee.
The new 10,000-plus square-foot building will be located north of the existing high school. The area will include a weight-lifting area, plyometric area, two restrooms, a meeting area and a small coaches' room.
A story about the donation and complex was published in Friday's Norwalk Reflector.
