The Internet is playing a role in trying to convince Greater Vernon residents to support a proposed sports complex.

The Regional District of North Okanagan has added information to its website on plans for a running track and sports field next to Okanagan College.

"We are responding as we receive questions," said Tannis Nelson, community development co-ordinator.

Among the issues discussed on the website are the reasons for a facility and the impact on households if $8.5 million is borrowed during an April referendum.

The information can be found at www.rdno.ca/index.php/services/recreation/greater-vernon-parks-recreation-culture/community-sports-facility-referendum.
