Sports District Proposed To Fund Renovations To Hulman Center

Hulman Center

The Terre Haute Board of Public Works and Safety authorized a feasibility study and a lobbying agreement for the creation of a sports district to pay for renovations to Hulman Center. The feasibility studies will cost close to $50,000.

Funding for the study and the lobbying agreement will come from the city’s Economic Development Income Tax. State Rep. Bob Heaton, R-Terre Haute, put forward the idea for a sports district for Hulman Center this legislative session.

It would be similar to a proposed sports district in Indianapolis.

If approved it would allow a portion of sales taxes from specific businesses to be diverted back to the renovation of  Hulman Center. Total cost of renovations is estimated at about $35 million.

The facility was built in 1973 for $10 million with $2.5 coming from the Hulman family.
