Devils Lake project gains support of community groups

DEVILS LAKE, N.D. – The Devils Lake Community Wellness Center and Events Center project has gained support from key community groups in advance of the Oct. 7 vote to create a new half-cent city sales tax.

Community entities including CHI Mercy Hospital, Devils Lake Youth Association, Forward Devils Lake Development Corp., Devils Lake Chamber of Commerce, Devils Lake Convention and Visitors Bureau, Devils Lake Park Board, and Cankdeska Cikana Community College are all on record as supporting the $23.5 million centers project.

“These groups have come together in recognition of the need for this important project,” said Paula Vistad, Devils Lake Chamber Executive Director. “We are fortunate to have community-minded organizations that understand the Community Wellness Center and Events Center will enhance the quality of life for all Devils Lake residents, and help the city continue its pattern of growth in the future.”

The half-cent city sales tax would help fund construction of the two centers. The Community Wellness Center would be built on the campus of Lake Region State College; the Events Center would be created by repurposing the previous Walmart location. Residents will go to the polls from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Oct. 7 to vote on creating the half-cent city sales tax.
