DL Convention and wellness center plans take shape

A consultant working with a local steering committee reviewing possible plans for a Devils Lake convention and wellness center says the most likely site for the project will be on the east edge of the city adjacent to U.S Highway 2.  Todd Berning says officials also considered a possible location on the north end of town near LRSC but decided that for many reasons decided to focus on the Highway 2 location.  Berning says one priority now is to gauge interest from health care providers in being a partner in the wellness center portion of the project.  He says it's a formula that has worked well in other cities in North Dakota for a number of reasons.  Voters will ultimately be asked to approve the proposed project but it's now unlikely residents will see a ballot measure this year given election deadlines for November.
