SARASOTA, FL - With the 2017 World Rowing Championships lined up, the big question becomes who will help build the Benderson Park facility?

Several construction projects are needed, including a boat house and a grand stand. So who will do the labor?

What contractors are being considered? Will members of the local community, perhaps some in need of work, be hired to get the facility ready?

ABC 7 Reporter Bobeth Yates is working to get those answers by taking a closer look at the next phase of the project.
