The city is in the mist of creating a master plan to revitalize the dilapidated center, much of which was built in 1964. The center includes an exhibition hall, an arena that hosts music shows and a concert hall often used for theater performances.
“The most important aspect of this process is public participation and input because the people will ultimately determine the success of this valuable community and civic resource,” Caldwell said in a press release.
The city recently hired a team of consultants to assist with the master plan, which includes AECOM, WCIT Architecture and Lincoln Center Global of New York.
