Soldotna Regional Sports Complex

City of Soldotna

  People with mobility issues have long had trouble reaching the upper levels of the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex, as it has no elevator. But that will soon change.

The Soldotna City Council last week authorized the city manager to waive the formal bidding process and enter into a contract with Alaska Stairlift and Elevator company of Anchorage for the installation of an inclined platform lift.

Councilman Paul Whitney asked Public Works Director Kyle Kornelis about the actual equipment, wondering what kind of lift it will be.

Voters in the city of Soldotna will decide in March whether they want to take on some debt to pay for a new field house next to the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex.

A big step in expanding the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex will be introduced at this week’s city council meeting. A proposed addition of a 42,000 square foot fieldhouse has been in the works for several year. But the city will have to take on some debt if it wants to see the project completed.

 

 


Annexation may have been one of the hot topics over the past couple years in Soldotna, but there's a lot more going on. This week, we talk with city manager Stephanie Queen about everything from partnering with the city of Kenai on infrastructure projects to how the city gears up for fishing season. And, of course, the next steps in the process toward potential annexation.
