Review materials from the recent civic center open house that focused on proposed expansion plans.  Materials include a civic center project presentation and architectural presentation boards.

Plans include a Mankato arena and event center auditorium and renovation of the existing arena.  The event center auditorium addition will have seating capacity for up to 2,500 people.  Retractable seating on the first floor will allow for a flat floor space for tradeshows and expos and a portable stage, rigging, lighting, audio visual equipment and acoustics to support a variety of events.  A first and second floor lobby will accommodate prefunction uses and concessions.  Four new conference rooms are anticipated, with two located in the addition.

The arena renovation consists of a new second level constructed between the first floor and concourse level on the west side of the arena.  In addition, existing facilities will be renovated to accommodate university hockey programs, including new home team and visiting team locker rooms, training and conditioning spaces, hockey operations, coaches offices, team and recruiting spaces.
