KSAL StaffOctober 27, 2015

The Salina Bicentennial Center held its open house this evening as a celebration for the completion of renovations.

The $13 million renovations added some aesthetic upgrades to the facility, as well as functional necessities such as bringing the locker rooms and other parts of the facility up to ADA regulation.

Salina mayor Jon Blanchard, Bicentennial Center general manager Ron Rideout, city manager Jason Gage, Salina Arts and Humanities Director Brad Anderson and others spoke at the beginning of the event, offering thanks and praise to supporters in the community, at the workplace and at home. City manager Gage said that when doing work for the city, he there are “three main things I’d like to see in a project: quality work, things done in a timely manner and at a reasonable price, and you hate to see any of those things comprimised. We didn’t have to comprimise any of those things with this project.”

Upgrades were also made to the concourse, including many of the concession stands offering new items. The new concession stand sampled some of its newest treats during the open house, giving guests some refreshments. Around 100 people attended the event.
