The countdown is on to the start of construction of the events center in Sioux Falls. The city says construction activity will start in six weeks.
That is one of the updates provided to the city council Tuesday afternoon.
The city says the project is on track with 100 percent of the design development drawings complete. In the next 60 days, there are plans for a public meeting to be held on June 21; webcams will go up by mid July so that people can monitor the progress; and groundbreaking is planned for August.
The city council will also have to make a multi-million dollar decision involving naming rights for the facility.
The city isn't saying much about that process, only that progress to secure a sponsor is being made. They hope to have something in place by August, ahead of the groundbreaking.
