LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Lawrence city commissioners have given final approval to a proposal to build recreation center in northwest Lawrence.

The proposed $25 million recreation center will include gyms, an indoor turf field and other amenities as part of the Rock Chalk Park project. The city is spending $22.5 million on the project, which is part of a partnership between the city, a Kansas University Endowment entity and a private developer.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/15MuOaA ) a revised development agreement requires the commission to meet monthly to review infrastructure costs and clarifies that some fees for the project are exempt from a 2.5 percent management fee charged by the private developer.

The recreation center will be next to a larger project that will include privately owned athletic facilities for the University of Kansas.
