The Devils Lake City Commission is looking into bolstering the town's tourism industry with a new convention center. The commission authorized a $25,000 dollar study to determine what type of facility would fit in Devils Lake.

A Grand Forks Architectural group has been hired to conduct the study, which could take five to six weeks to complete. The proposed wellness and convention center would be built on the east side of Devils Lake, near where a Super Wal-Mart is expected to be built. Mayor Dick Johnson says developers have expressed an interest in building a hotel in Devils Lake to pair with the convention center. Once the study is complete, city leaders will develop a proposal to present to the community.
