Detailed images and concept plans for the Clutha Recreation Centre were tabled and outlined at the meeting, which was attended by more than 50 people representing sports and recreation groups. The sports facility will be built on the site of Dreaver Courts next to the main Balclutha sportsfields.
Clutha Recreation Centre Inc secretary Irene Mosley said the presentation outlined the background and work the committee had done since being formed in 2005.
Architect Phil Gilchrist and structural engineer John Heenan also spoke.
Mrs Mosley said the group was keen to keep costs under $5 million but the overwhelming message from the meeting was that the facility should be "be done once and be done right".
"The end result was unanimous support for the group to proceed with the aim of getting as much funding as possible so that the facilities can incorporate as many sports as possible," she said.
Plans for the facility can be seen online at www.projectclutha.co.nz.
