The Rapid City mayor says he supports constructing a new arena in the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center complex.
Thursday night, he gave a presentation outlining his vision to expand the concert hall and sporting complex just north of downtown.
There are two different futures for the Barnett Arena.
It’s the last complex in the civic center to meet Americans With Disabilities compliance. Following a failed campaign for a new civic center in 2015, the city signed an agreement with the federal government to bring the arena into ADA compliance. That deadline ends this month.
