The permanent home of one of the pools from last year's U.S. Olympic Swim Trials — along with 18 tennis courts and potentially room for other sports — will be chosen this spring.
Monday, organizers of the planned Omaha Multi-Sport Complex announced that the group was putting out a formal request for proposals from landowners interested in the facility. Along with the Olympic-size pool, the project would include a smaller warm-up pool, seating for 2,000 swimming spectators and 6,500 tennis spectators, weight-training rooms, pro shops and other amenities.
