The Jefferson City School Board heard a proposal for a new $1.2 million dollar tennis complex on Monday night.
The complex would be a joint proposal between Jefferson City Parks and Recreation, Lincoln University, and possibly JCPS.
The city would contribute about $200,000.
Lincoln University has applied for a federal grant but doesn’t know how much it will receive.
It is not clear how much JCPS might be willing to put toward the project.
The eight new tennis courts would be built at the corner of Lafayette and Dunklin where Lincoln currently has courts which are in disrepair.
The proposal came about as a JCPS student project.
Officials told ABC 17 the student never thought it would get this far.
The project is also relying on private donations.
Currently, the capital city cannot hold state tennis tournaments because the area lacks tennis courts.
There is no word on when the school might make a decision to join the partnership.
