Wichita is once again brainstorming ideas on what to do with the boathouse.

Tuesday morning, the city council voted to send out requests for new ideas.

Bill Koch, whose donations helped renovate the building in the past, has already approached the city about making it the new home of the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame.

The boathouse issue has been at a standstill for the past three years. That's when the city sent out similar proposals but council members decided to table the issue until the Waterwalk project was further along.

But some council memebrs are frustrated that it's taken this long.

"This has been out there for three years and we as a council don't seem to be looking at anything except delaying it," said Council Member Sharon Fearey.

New proposals are expected back by February 19th with the council set to make a decision shortly thereafter.
