Proposed New Arena Facility in Gregg County

A new fine arts showplace and multi-purpose arena could be in the works for Gregg County. Civic leaders from several Gregg County communities are talking about creating a facility that would bring more sporting and rodeo events to the area, along with art exhibits. The proposed complex would cost just under 50-million dollars to build, with the county picking up most of the tab. A steering committee will be formed to bring several groups together on the project.
