KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Its official The Kalamazoo County Board will not, repeat Will NOT, be voting on the Downtown Arena project at their next meeting. Commissioners were apparently asked not to proceed with the proposal by the Suite Idea Group, which has been pushing the project.
Commissioner David Maturen proposed that they vote anyway. But County Board Vice Chair Debra Hiemstra argued against it suggesting that opponents just wanted to get everyone’s vote on the record. The Arena supporters apparently want to regroup and come back next year with a proposal.
