Commissioner Kelly Parks showed his frustration that other commissioners don’t want to enter into negotiations with North American Management-Kansas to develop the Kansas Coliseum.
“Be prepared to take your dog show downtown” Parks told those in the crowd who use the pavilions for dog and equestrian events.
“I’m going to tell you north end people, I tried,” he said, frustrated.
Parks said his district supports the North American proposal because it preserves Britt Brown Arena.
He and commissioner Gwen Welshimer are the only board members who appear to be supporting entering negotiations at this time. It appears likely the board will defer a decision.
