Special meeting to detail exhibition center project

Post Date:02/20/2015
If you have interest in learning more about the proposed downtown exhibition center project or have questions you would like answered, plan to attend a special meeting of the Community and Economic Development Committee Monday at 6 p.m. 

The meeting will specifically address questions surrounding the proposed project. Members of the committee and audience members will be able to ask questions at the meeting. 

The meeting will begin with an overview of the project from Mayor Hanna. There will also be brief presentations from the Fox Cities Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce, Fox Cities Exhibition Center board president and Appleton Downtown Inc., to discuss their roles in the proposed project. 

Unlike a traditional committee or Common Council meeting, there will then be a question and answer period at the end of the meeting for anyone in the community to ask questions of the committee and stakeholders involved in the project. 

Topics that will be covered include the ownership of the proposed exhibition center and Radisson Paper Valley Hotel, the legal considerations surrounding the process, the city’s proposal to purchase land for the proposed project from Outagamie County, the management agreement to operate the proposed exhibition center and funding construction through bonds and hotel room taxes. 

Community members are encouraged to attend or submit questions to committee members ahead of the meeting. The meeting can also be viewed live on our website

Attached is a list of questions submitted by members of the Common Council and the community that will be addressed at the meeting. You can reach the Common Council directly to ask a question of your own by clicking this link. You can click here to find a copy of the meeting agenda.
