HAPPENING TODAY: Public hearing on Waterloo convention center deal

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Tonight, people can share their thoughts about a big development deal in the works in Waterloo.

A developer from Omaha wants to buy the Five Sullivan Brothers Convention Center, renovate that and the Ramada.

"I believe this proposed development is the best opportunity to restore what has been a very neglected venue and, at the same time, put the soul back into downtown Waterloo where it belongs," said Tim Hurley, former Waterloo mayor.

Tonight's meeting begins at 5:30.
