City to ask public to "help shape" new Savannah Arena 

The City of Savannah will hold a news conference on Thursday, August 23 about the design phase of the new Savannah Arena project.

The conference is Thursday at 9:30 a.m. at City Hall.

"Pete Shonka, the Executive Director of Arena Development will announce how the public can provide feedback to the City and the arena design contractor Perkins + Will. The City will be soliciting input concerning the features and amenities inside and outside the new arena," a City spokesperson says.
Perkins + Will was recently awarded a nearly $9 million contract to provide the design of the new arena. The total cost of building the arena will be at least $120 million, with tens of millions more budgeted for road widening, drainage, parking, and other amenities not funded by the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax which is funding the arena itself.
