Velodrome slated for development


The Major Taylor Velodrome near Marian University is about to get a major upgrade.

The University, city leaders and several local sports organizations announced plans for the Indy Cycloplex. It will develop the area around the current track - a project that includes a new St. Vincent Sports Performance facility.

"We believe this will help us attract more athletes and more organizations to move to Indianapolis to live, compete and work," said Allison Melangton, president of the Indiana Sports Corporation.

The development may one day include office space for some of the city's amateur sports organizations.
