I was very involved in the whole evolution of the downtown arena. Made countless decisions on amenities, management, design, parking, etc. Attended every public meeting and read all the online surveys to try to get an understanding of what the public wanted in a new arena. Voted to put it up for a public vote that passed and moved the project along. Supported the creation of an outside oversight committee of community members. Insured that the sales tax ended in 30 months as promised. Gave over forty tours of Intrust Bank Arena while it was under construction to citizens who were interested in an effort to communicate that it was the citizen's arena. The Intrust Bank Arena became one of the key catalysts for the revitalization of the core downtown that is flourishing today.
