    Plans are progressing swiftly for a new $42 million prep sports complex near the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena, despite a lingering legal spat between a private property owner and the city's Parks Department. The state agency tasked with approving large-scale public works projects signed off last week on a design and construction plan for the complex with tentative completion in September 2020. The Spokane Public Facilities District, operators of the arena, the convention center and the INB Performing Arts Center, sent out a solicitation Friday for proposals from firms that could build the facility, envisioned as a 180,000-square-foot complex that includes a 200-meter banked indoor track with room for basketball, volleyball, gymnastics and wrestling events. "It's just super positive. How fun for Spokane to have the largest track west of the Mississippi," said Stephanie Curran, chief executive officer of the public facilities district. "The amount of business that's going to open up for the community, and for the hotels, is amazing."
