Alva Arena Authority goes back to original plan
June 14, 2017
The Alva Arena Authority continues to meet to create plans to build a large arena. Over the last few months, the group has viewed several designs. At their June 6 meeting, they decided to go back to the original rendering.
The next step was to discuss interior finishes. Input was requested from the board to define what is a high-end, middle-end and low-end interior finish and the costs associated with each.
The design committee said they would be meeting again soon and they would try to gather that information.
In regards to funding, the bank account contains $123,173.61, according to Treasurer Todd Holder. The next step is to schedule a conference call with Attorney Dan Batchelor of the Center for Economic Development to inquire further about a TIF (Tax Increment Finance District) and possible other financing mechanisms available.
Authority members attending the June 6 meeting included Dr. Janet Cunningham, Todd Holder, Mike Hood, Darrell Kline and Dr. Charles Tucker. Those absent included Gregg Glass and Daren Slater.
