Monongalia County Commission Working with WVU, City of Morgantown to Make Athletics More Accessible

Posted: Updated:

Monongalia County is working towards making recreational sports more accessible in the area.

The county commission is working on sports, recreation and wellness growth.

The City of Morgantown and WVU has been working with the commission to make this happen.

The hope is to create a new ice rink, put turf on the softball fields at White Park, and even possible build public pools.

"It's a really big project but we are really excited because we have all the different parties involved and we're going to come up with different ways to fund it and how to move forward on it. We're also going to ask for peoples input. When you look at the rest of the state and they have a YMCA or recreational facility, we do not have that for our community," said Tom Bloom, Monongalia County Commission.

County commission says the project is a priority.
