Bettendorf is working with a developer to build a large sports and entertainment complex. Today, the city and Doug Kratz announced the $45 million project called, BettPlex.
Michelle O'Neill reports it'll be located on Forest Grove Road near Middle Road and I-80.
Kratz serves on the board of Triumph Bancorp and before 2013, was vice chair of Triumph Community Bank in Bettendorf. He says the complex will feature indoor fields that will accomodate a variety of sports, from baseball to wrestling. Eight basketball, pickleball, and volleyball courts will also be part of the 265,000-square-foot building. Sand volleyball courts will be built inside and outside.
