Re: UVM New Arena Thread

Based on the contents of today's article in the BFP it's going to be awhile before we get a new arena in Burlington. The board of trustees just moved forward on a plan for a 100 million dollar STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) buildings behind the Old Mill Building. This is the largest capital project in the history of UVM. In addition to this they are working on a plan to renovate Billings Library. They are also looking to replace some student housing through adding 405 beds through a private developer.

Given all that investment in bricks and mortar I suspect we are a solid ten years away from having a new sporting venue for basketball and hockey. That's a long time to wait as the other schools continue to improve their facilities. At some point recruiting is going to take a hit.

Here's the link if you want the details:

I heard from a reliable source that investors have been identified and meetings are set over the course of the next several months. Now they just need to buy in!!

Good news! I have no doubt that UVM/Burlington will get this thing built. It will benefit the entire area.

Not to rain on the parade because it's definitely encouraging to see action taking place and resources are dedicated to working on getting this thing off the ground, but if we are still in the have to pitch the idea and get prospective partners/investors to commit funds for the project then we are still very far away.

It's great meetings are taking place but unless those responsible can close them and they raise their hands and then tap others on the head, not setting any expectations.

Check out @a JKanell's Tweet: https://twitter.com/AJKanell/status/...372425728?s=09

Apparently they announced plans to build a 5700 seat dual sport facility.

That's....great(?). I'm announcing my plan that UVM will make the NCAA Tournament in 2014-15.

I'm sure it fires up the crowd and makes them feel good attending the Dinner, but we've had these plans for years. Kanell's follow up Tweet was "still have not reached fundraising goal and accepting donations".

Don't mean to be cynical, but I can't get excited about it until I hear "UVM has secured financing to construct a 5700 capacity arena" OR "UVM IS BUILDING a 5700 capacity arena, construction begins on X date".

Agree completely but I do think it's encouraging that public statements are positive. Could easily say nothing or that the economic climate doesn't support it.

It was a dark & rainy day in BTV yesterday so I did get excited for about 14 seconds after seeing that " annoucement". I guess I should thank them for blowing a little sunshine up my *** .

Yeah, I don't mind a little optimism now and then, but I'm with UVMHC...let me know when guys in dress suits and hardhats are sticking shovels in the ground for photographers.
