  • Plans for new state fair arena revised

    Later this week, plans will be presented to the MAPS Board that reveal a revised state fair arena.

    Eliminated from previously disclosed plans: an upper level of seating and a small horse/livestock arena between the existing barns and the new facility, along with more barn and multi-purpose space.

    Seating capacity would be reduced by 1,354 for basketball and 1,682 for concerts.

    The construction would occur in such a way that the existing Norick Arena would remain operational until the new facility is complete, then it would be demolished.

    The new arena is budgeted to receive $63 million in funding from MAPS 4, and was also allocated $9 million from MAPS 3.
