Committee Member Answers Event Center Questions
Date posted - October 13, 2015
Sheldon, Iowa — For the past few months, the City of Sheldon has been considering the construction of a proposed Event Center that, if built, would be in the new park area adjacent to Highway 60 in the Sheldon Crossing area.
Rick Nordahl is a member of the committee charged with investigating the feasibility of such a facility in Sheldon. Nordahl appeared on the KIWA Morning Show Tuesday, and told how he came to be a part of that committee.
Nordahl says that, to the best of his knowledge, all of the members of the committee were volunteers, as well.
He says that the last time the committee met was for an open informational meeting at the Community Services Center.
We asked Nordahl if, in his opinion, the topic of the proposed Event Center should be brought to a public vote.
He says that the proposed facility would play host to more than just wedding dances and family reunions.
When asked about the operating losses that the feasibility study projected, Nordahl said that the bigger picture shows the economic benefit that such a center would provide.
