The City of Round Rock retained Economics Research Associates (ERA) in May 2006 to analyze alternative concepts for a major new event facility that could be developed in Round Rock. A portion of the funding for the study was also provided by the Round Rock Chamber of Commerce and its Economic Development Partnership.
A variety of conversations had been taking place in Round Rock regarding various types of new facilities that could be developed to house events, thereby adding to the quality of life for residents and advancing economic development goals of the community.
ERA's 78-page report (PDF) was presented to the City Council on Jan. 25, 2007. It analyzes five types of venues: Special Events Center, Multi-Purpose Arena, Performing Arts Center, Convention/Conference Center, and Civic/Community Center.
The next step for the City of Round Rock is to explore partnership opportunties. Contacts for this project are Assistant City Manager/CFO David Kautz, Convention and Visitor's Bureau Director Nancy Yawn, and Round Rock Chamber of Commerce Vice President Joe Vining.
