Plan for youth sports complex at Kemper Arena



KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Members of a Kansas City Council committee say they are impressed with a proposal to turn Kemper Arena into a youth sports complex.
 
Developer Steve Foutch detailed his plans for Kemper Thursday to the council's planning and zoning committee. He says the complex would include a new second floor in the arena, with 12 basketball courts, fitness rooms and the region's largest indoor running track.
 
Foutch says the idea is to draw thousands of kids and their families to the area, while also saving the arena from demolition.
 
The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1oLdUD0 ) the Foutch proposal is competing with a plan from the American Royal, which would replace Kemper with a smaller building for equestrian events, and use the building at other times for youth soccer and different sports.
