But not without public input.
Monday night there will be a meeting at the Morton Center regarding the project's viability study.
The facility could include an Olympic-sized pool, weight room, and basketball courts.
Parks Superintendent Janet Fawley says the building is expected to cost around $20 to $25 million.
Monday's meeting with be the second of the day.
Mayor John Dennis says the city is footing the bill of the project, but citizens are driving it.
"Obviously when we sit here in our cold offices we think we know everything but without the guidance of our citizenry, we are sometimes whiff. When you're talking about spending 20 to 30 million dollars we want to make sure that we not only get it right but that we knock it out of the park," said Dennis.
Monday night's meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m.
