[ARCHIVED] Coliseum One of Eight Finalists for an All Star Community Award

Vote All Star Coliseum

The renovation of the Veterans Memorial Coliseum is in the running to be the People's All Star Award winner through the Iowa League of Cities, and your vote will help us win!  The Coliseum sailed past Monticello in the first round with 230 votes.  Now it is onto the Elite 8 to take on the City of Pierson and their native plant parks.  The voting for this round will end on Monday, August 30th!  Please "like" or "love" the picture of the Coliseum to cast your vote!

Each week the city with the most "likes" or "loves" in their head-to-head match-up will advance on until the final two projects will be voted on the week of September 13th.  The People's All Star will be announced at the Iowa League of Cities conference on September 16th.

The Veterans Memorial Coliseum was heavily damaged in the 2018 tornado.  Thanks to the generosity of more than 400 donors, the City was able to transform a 90-year old building into a brand new full-size gym with multiple flex spaces for recreational programming and public rental.  This truly is an all star project!  Stay tuned to www.marshalltown-ia.gov or the City of Marshalltown's Facebook page for more details in the coming weeks!
