Mayor Allender Hosts Additional Presentation Regarding Barnett Arena Proposals

Residents of Rapid City listened to Mayor Steve Allender present two options for the future of the Barnett Arena at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center. According to KOTA News, one option is to build an entirely new arena with a cost estimated between $100-$130 million. The other option involves renovations, which are estimated at $25 million.

A special meeting to discuss and vote on options for the arena will be held by the Rapid City Council on February 26. Additional public presentations on the future of the Barnett Arena will be available through May 2018.
