Note: Professional consultants have determined the Pioneer Arena is neither sustainable nor viable and a plan is being developed for its closure. There will be no further taxpayer funds committed to do significant repairs to the facility. Information about the Pioneer Arena status and usage can be found in the May 2, 2017, public open house presentation.

If Option B is selected, a new ice sheet is planned to replace the Pioneer Arena.
