OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – The College of St. Mary in Omaha hopes to begin construction this spring on an $18 million athletic complex.

The Omaha Planning Board this week unanimously approved a zoning change for a site on the east side of the college campus, near the Aksarben Village.

The complex will include a 200-meter indoor track, basketball and volleyball courts, batting tunnels for softball, fitness area, locker rooms and meeting space.
