LA VISTA, Neb. (AP) — A Nebraska sports complex may miss out on turnback taxes because of a delay in its opening.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that the $125 million Nebraska Multisport Complex in La Vista is still in its fundraising phase and hasn't set a date for beginning construction.

The project will likely miss an October deadline to secure up to $50 million in state turnback tax.

Tax forms indicate that the group has raised more than $11 million for the project since 2016. The project will also be financed by revenue bonds, $10 million in infrastructure support from La Vista, revenue from the complex and potential tourism dollars from Sarpy County.

The project includes soccer fields, squash and pickleball courts, tennis courts and an aquatic center with Olympic-sized and therapy pools.

In Aug. 2017, Kansas-city-based J.E. Dunn Construction Company, which performed the site grading, won the bid as the project's general contractor.
