Mayor Allender presented to the Rapid City Council on the Civic Center Wednesday night. The main issue is the Barnett Arena is outdated and suffers from multiple American with Disabilities Act (ADA) violations. The Rapid City Journal reported that Allender offered two solutions to the ADA issues: remodel the arena for $25 million or build a new facility for between $100 and $130 million. Previously, voters opposed a plan to remodel the Barnett Arena and the Civic Center that would have cost around $180 million. With the building now 40 years old, city staff have pointed out that it is unable to support the larger music shows. While remodeling meets the immediate concerns for the ADA violations, it does not prepare the city for future events.
