City Releases Specific Event Center Details

City Releases Specific Event Center Details
SIOUX FALLS, SD - With 19 days until Sioux Falls votes on a proposed event center, the finer details of the design are released all the way down to the premium and lower bowl seating.

"It's an expensive investment; it's $115 million and we want people to understand what it is that they are buying, what they're getting for their return," Mayor Mike Huether said.

To stress the advantages of the new event center, they compared it to the current arena. Dan Mehls of Mortenson Construction plans on more elevators, railings and ADA accessible seating, as well as improved sightlines.

"A lot of thought and study has been put into the new event center for sightlines and availability," Mehls said.

"When you buy a brand new home, you don't just look at the outside and say, 'Yep, I'm going to buy that thing.' You want to look at all the drawers; you want to look in all the closets. You want to make sure that it meets your needs," Huether said.

And while city is comparing the event center to the arena, they say it will not replace the 51-year-old facility.

"The current arena has one of the busiest schedules in the region. One of the aspects is to have a new facility to increase the available space but also dates and encourage other venues to come into Sioux Falls," Director of Public Works Mark Cotter said.

Leading up to the election, the city will hold two more informational meetings to highlight different details of the proposed event center.
