Citizen’s Committee Recommends $319M Amarillo Civic Center Redo

Order Reprints...

A five-member citizen executive committee is recommending a massive renovation to the Amarillo Civic Center, on Buchanan Street, in Amarillo, TX. The committee recently presented its recommendations, estimated at a $310 million cost, to the city council.

The list of upgrades include:

  • Construction of a 75,600-square-foot expanded, continuous exhibit space
  • Creation of a new convention center entry and pre-function space
  • Repurposing remaining exhibit hall space into configurable meeting space
  • Creation of a true, back-of-house with loading and services areas for facility support
  • Development of an expanded outdoor central plaza for pre-event activities

The project would be financed mainly by voter-approved debt. The recommendations will be up for a vote on Feb. 11, 2020 and, if approved, will go up for election on May 2, 2020.
