Consultants hired by the city of Sioux Falls say the Arena location comes out on top when compared to Cherapa Place as a potential site for an Events Center.
That's based on a comparative site analysis and economic impact study completed by the consultants. When looking at 12 key issues, the Arena received 85 of 100 points. The Cherapa location got 75 points.
Results were released Monday afternoon during the city council's informational meeting. After the presentation, city council members had a chance to ask questions. To listen in to that question and answer session, click on the attached video player. Video courtesy CityLink.
