City council taking lead role on proposed new ice arena

Members of the Worthington City Council on Monday approved a professional services agreement with HTG Architects of Hopkins regarding potential programming at a proposed new arena as well as a feasibility study.


In authorizing the agreement, the city effectively assumed the lead role on the proposed project and will continue to work with other partners who will provide insight, advice and financial participation. The city is recommending that a new ice arena be built on city-owned property and be owned, operated and managed by the city.


HTG Architects has designed new and renovated ice arenas throughout the country, included several in Minnesota. Its work for the city will include examining programming and space needs, preparing cost estimates, establishing the project schedule and more. The fee to perform this work is $15,600 plus expenses.


Also Monday, the city approved a professional services agreement with Bolton and Menk for work pertaining to the replacement of the roof and heating unit on the Worthington Municipal Airport terminal building. The city’s share of the work is 14.19%, or $2,838. Nearly 57% of the money is coming from the Federal Aviation Administration, and there’s a state share of nearly 29%.


The council also approved plans for the upcoming Third and Fourth avenue street and utility and improvement project and authorized the advertisement for bids. The deadline for receipt of bids is 2 p.m. March 27, and they'll be considered for award at the April 08 city council meeting.
