Amoco Joint Powers Board Will Hear Conference Center Details
The board that oversees the development of the former Amoco refinery property will hear about the scope and costs of the proposed conference center at its monthly meeting at 2435 King Blvd. at 6 p.m. Wednesday, according to the board's agenda.
The Amoco Reuse Agreement Joint Powers Board has cleared several hurdles for the conference center, hotel, parking lot and other improvements proposed to be located on 17 acres on the Platte River Commons, the name for the former refinery property.
Last month, board Chairman Bryce Row said central Wyoming already has hotels that can accommodate hundreds of people, but it needs an all-inclusive conference center to handle conventions for thousands of people.
"But as far as taking in a large base, when it comes here for a convention of thousands of people, we don’t have the facilities in town," Row said.
