Meeting set to discuss future of Civic Auditorium and Coliseum

Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero, City staff and consultants from Conventions, Sports and Leisure International will discuss the recently completed feasibility study for the Knoxville Civic Auditorium and Coliseum at a Jan. 14 public meeting at 6 p.m. in the Civic Auditorium located at 500 Howard Baker Jr. Ave., according to a news release.

You can find the study RIGHT SMACK HERE.

The study considers three alternatives: retaining the current structures with minimal upgrades; renovating and redeveloping the complex; and completely replacing the complex.

Cost estimates for various options within those alternatives range from $26 million to $279.5 million. The study also estimates the direct and indirect economic benefits of each of the scenarios.
