A proposed multipurpose building could help attract more groups to the capital city, according to one official in the Jefferson City Parks and Recreation Department.
Department director Bill Lockwood said a multipurpose building could bring in more visitors to the area, primarily through sports tournaments.
“I think there’s a big opportunity to bring a lot of people in for weekend volleyball, basketball tournaments,” Lockwood said. “A lot of folks are having to travel elsewhere for those now and our good central location would help make that a good use for the facility.”
