Sioux Falls says "Yes" to a new events center

Posted: Updated:

The people have voted in favor of a new events center.

23,283 people or 58% voted Yes, 16,806 people or 42% voted No.

It will be a $115 million facility to be built adjacent to the current Sioux Falls Arena and Convention Center.

It will seat 12,000 people for concerts, games and other shows.

The city says taxes won't be raised and there won't be any new taxes from the project.

The project will be financed with the sale of bonds, and to help pay for the center, the city will use revenue from a second penny sales tax which is already in place.
