The South Dakota Ellsworth Development Authority (SDEDA) donated $500,000 worth of land, and KTM Design Solutions and Scull Construction donated staff and work time to assist Box Elder in building a new sports complex. According to a Rapid City Journal article, the complex will feature baseball, softball, and soccer fields and will be located next to Vandenberg Elementary School.
The SDEDA still needs to raise approximately $5 million. Fundraising efforts are expected to begin at the end of September, with the goal being reached within two years.
