Storm Lake Mini-Pitch Construction to Start in August ; Kickoff Event Planned for September

A mini-pitch soccer field that has been in the works in Storm Lake is scheduled to open this fall.

The City of Storm Lake has been working with the non-profit recreation program “Kick it Forward” on the project. “Kick It Forward” has raised approximately 90-percent of the 100-thousand dollar goal for the field.
