The West Haymarket Joint Public Agency (JPA) will consider a transfer of $1 million of Pinnacle Bank Arena construction contingency funds to the University of Nebraska Foundation.  The funds would be the JPA's contribution to the Foundation's fund-raising efforts for the proposed Breslow Ice Facility to be built in the West Haymarket District.  

If the University Board of Regents vote to approve the Breslow Ice Facility project at their meeting January 24, the JPA members will vote on the fund transfer at their meeting Tuesday, February 11.  The three-member JPA board encourages those interested in the issue to attend the February 11 meeting to provide comments.  The meeting is at 3 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 555 South 10th Street.

The proposed new ice skating facility would be located within the West Haymarket JPA boundaries.  JPA members have indicated their desire that any facility built there be designed and constructed in a way that protects the significant taxpayer investment in the West Haymarket  area and that guarantees the availability of public skating in the University ice facility.
