The Iowa City City Council approved preliminary architectural design plans and cost-sharing agreements Tuesday for the facility replacing the Animal Care and Adoption Center, which was heavily damaged in the 2008 flood.

Iowa City and shelter officials anticipate a $3 million cost. The cost will be split between FEMA funding and contributions from surrounding cities and entities.

Coralville, University Heights, and the University of Iowa have agreed to help fund the Iowa City shelter.

The councilors approved the resolution on a 6-0 vote.
