The board of trustees in April approved the bid process for an aquatic center that could cost more than $33 million.

District officials expect to present an official cost estimate for the facility to the board in June. At that time, the board will decide whether to approve construction of the center as presented or eliminate an additional practice pool and athletic training area that have been added to the facility’s plans.

Once plans and funding are approved, construction of the aquatic center could “begin in the coming months,” district officials said at the board’s April 22 meeting.

The facility is set to be built on Texan Drive across from NISD’s administration center in Fort Worth.
