DALLAS — The small Wichita, Kan., suburb of Goddard wants to issue special sales tax bonds to fund a $160 million development that includes an Olympic-size aquatic center and dinosaur-themed educational attraction.

The Goddard City Council will hold a Nov. 18 public hearing on a proposal to issue $46.7 million of STAR bonds for the project. The bonds, which are supported by state and local sales taxes within a specified area, must also be approved by the Kansas Department of Commerce.
