City ponders consultant to review convention center sites
Tuesday, December 13, 2011
Another step in trying to get a convention center for Jefferson City looks to take place “in the next few days” according to Nathan Nickolaus, interim city administrator and city attorney.
During a city council work session Monday night, Nickolaus said they want to get a consultant to look at which of the two proposed sites, one at Broadway and W. McCarty Street and the other at the old Missouri State Prison site, would be best for the city, based on a business model.
The plan is to try and show which site could best to draw conventions and visitors, in other words, which site would have the best return from investing in it.
