SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – The City of Sioux City is terminating agreement’s with two sports venues under development, but Mayor Pro-Tem Dan Moore says the projects are still a go.  

The $11 million Siouxland Expo and $13 million Arena project are both to be built in the city’s old stockyards area. Moore says because plans and designs for the Expo Center are being updated, the site plan for both projects is changing.

“We’re trying to do the right thing making sure everything is good. So some of that means we’re going to be changing some of the plans.  That’s what we did today.  And that also affected the Arena which their plans are evolving,” said Mayor Pro-Tem Dan Moore.  

“We feel this is a positive step for both the Expo and Arena groups to progress.  The site setup will allow for more of a campus feel and improve the optics of I-29 and that’s the reason for the change,” said Jeff Carlson of the Arena team.

Carlson says The Arena team hopes to make an announcement about the project changes in the next couple of weeks.
