DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) — An advisory board has recommended a site for a proposed $10 million water park in Dodge City.

The Community Facility Advisory Board recommended Wright Park over three other possible sites for the park.

The Dodge City Daily Globe reports Wright Park's bid was helped by a proposal from a development group to build a 90- to 120-bed hotel near the water park at Wright Park.

Joint city and county commissions will make the final decision. The proposal is still in the early planning stages.

Wright Park also is within the city's "heritage district." That makes it eligible for STAR bonds, which allow property developers to offset the cost of infrastructure development.

City officials say if all goes as planned the park could open in May 2016.
