The County Board AEC committee is currently reviewing various proposals to expand and upgrade the AEC and the Coliseum.
Possible upgrades include adding more convention center space with ballrooms, a second hotel, retail space, parking garage. The coliseum would be made more accessible with wider hall space outside of the arena and new dressing rooms. Some of these additions have been mentioned by different groups, individuals, and online surveys conducted by the county board.
Nothing is confirmed yet and funding is not established as to how we will pay for any additions or expansions. This will need private funding to move the project.
Review and provide input for the AEC! The next information/visioning session will be
Wednesday September 12thfrom 5:00-7:00 PM at the AEC
