Looks like tomorrow will be a fun meeting for the MAPS 3 convention center subcommittee. Despite much debate and disagreement by the city council over efforts by Mayor Mick Cornett and city management to divert $30 million of the convention center budget to acquisition and relocation of a power station in Core to Shore (unrelated to the convention center), the budget change remains in place. There has been no city council vote on this matter, and voters were told the convention center budget would be $280 million. The ADG report to the committee proposes it be listed as $250 million, with $30 million now being listed for “infrastructure.”
The MAPS 3 subcommittee meets at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday on the 10th floor of 420 W Main.
