Exhibition Center questions answered following special meeting

Post Date:02/26/2015
Following a special meeting about the proposed Fox Cities Exhibition Center, the Community and Economic Development Committee has released a detailed question and answer document covering questions raised at the meeting. 

The February 23 meeting was held to bring the community up-to-speed on the various parts of the project. 

The meeting detailed the structure governing the ownership of the exhibition center, the status of the Radisson Paper Valley Hotel, the city’s proposal to purchase land for the project from Outagamie County, the management agreement to operate the exhibition center and funding construction through bonds and hotel room taxes. 

The 5-1/2 hour meeting featured a overview of the project from Mayor Hanna and presentations from involved stakeholder groups. The committee also spent several hours answering questions from council members and the community. 

Attached is a list of the questions raised at the meeting, along with answers to help the community better understand the process.
