VANDERBURGH CO., Ind. (WFIE) - Vanderburgh County Commissioner Cheryl Musgrave hopes the Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum will soon be renovated.

She says she’s working to submit a grant application.

It’s called a READI grant, and she says it will be very competitive.

Musgrave says there are several hurdles first, but the idea is to fully renovate the building to be a venue for many different events, such as tourism, meetings, concerts and others.

”Our treasure, this national historic registered property and a part of our lives, would be returned to full functioning,” Musgrave said. “Offering things on a continual basis, and be reinvented, reinvigorated and truly transformed.”

Musgrave says the next step is waiting to see whether the local economic development team chooses this project to move onto the next stage of this multiple level selection process.
