Ralston voters will decide tomorrow on whether a new multi-use arena will be built on the former Lakeview Golf Course Property. Ralston Mayor Don Grosser (grow-sur) says if the project gets voter approval, work will start almost immediately.
“We want to be done by October of 12 so it will be a very aggressive building.”
Plans for the building include two ice arenas that could be converted into a party room, convention space or music hall. Mayor Grosser says they have big plans for this building.
“We are going to have concerts and basketball and volleyball and all kinds of different things.”
Mayor Grosser says there will be two ice arenas and the venue will hold about four-thousand people total.
“The main arena will hold 35-hundred people and the other sheet of ice will have 500 people.”
Voters are being asked to approve a 29-million dollar bond issue for the project. This is a mail-in election and voters have until Tuesday to get those in the mail.
The new facility would also be the home for the Omaha Lancers Hockey team.
