Provo, Utah County strike deal for convention center

(The Enterprise) Utah County passed a bond resolution for up to $45 million in funding for a 120,000-square-foot convention center in downtown Provo. The bond will be funded by Utah County hotel room taxes. The three-story convention center will be built on approximately 2.5 acres between Center Street and 100 North and 200 and 300 West across the street from the Provo Marriott Hotel and Conference Center. Provo paid for two-thirds of the $6 million property. Utah County funded the rest. Mountainland Community Health Center and Atchfalaya will be relocated from the property. Provo City plans to build a parking garage to accommodate the facility. MHTN Architects will complete the architectural design, with plans to be finished by mid-2010. Once final plans are approved, the center could be finished 18 months later.
