Chamberlain Events Center On The Nov. Ballot



Bookmark and Share

This election day, residents of Chamberlain will have a big decision to make. They'll get to decide whether to approve a $5-million bond to help build a new events center at the city's high school.

The Chamberlain Cubs play at the armory, a building that is 60 years old and a place that has student athletes coming to practices at all hours.

“Young students, 10 years old, practicing athletic events as early as six o’clock in the morning and as late as 8 o’clock in the evening,” said Doug Knust, a committee member of the an organization supporting the project.

And with no theatre at the Chamberlain School, Doug Knust and others promoting the construction of the events and fine art's center feel it's time for an upgrade.

“Obviously, it would be great for the students of our high school who would have a new facility for athletic events and for our fine arts community,” said Knust.  

The events center would hold 2,500 people and a new theatre would hold 250. But, before construction begins a vote for a $5-million bond must pass on Election Day.

But, since this is a bond issue, 60% of Chamberlain would have to vote in favor of the plan.

And supporters of the new structures feel a new facelift to the school and community would give people a reason to invest in chamberlain.

“It would give young people a reason to come back to the community. And investing in ourselves is a great way to show them that maybe they should considering investing in us as well,” said Knust.
