Voters Set To Decide On Sioux Falls Events Center

SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Residents in South Dakota's largest city will decide on the fate of a $115 million events center.
Sioux Falls voters are being asked Tuesday to approve a proposal that would use money from a city sales tax already in place to help pay for the center.
Supporters of the project say it will energize the economy and put the city on the national map for sports and entertainment.
Some opponents are unhappy that the chosen site is not downtown. Others say the city should focus on other areas besides entertainment.
The center would seat 12,000 for concerts and basketball games. The measure needs a majority of voters to pass.
