The City of Yankton and Stockwell Engineers, from Sioux Falls, SD, have been working on a master plan for the city’s sports and recreation facilities since November of 2012. The preliminary master plan is based on the first Town Hall meeting and public comments from November, 2012, the user group one-on-one meetings from the spring of 2013, and the demographic information gathered by Stockwell. The master plan is an ongoing effort and the City of Yankton is still taking public comments on the preliminary plan. Identifying land that can house the recommended facilities and identifying funding sources for the recommendations are two very significant issues that will involve the entire community to find a solution to keep the plans moving forward.
