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 is now in the final round against Cilnton. The voting for this round will end on Thursday, September 16th at 12PM. Please "like" or "love" the picture of the Coliseum to cast your vote! The People's All-Star will be announced at the Iowa League of Cities conference on September 16th at the Awards Banquet.
For the last 4 weeks, projects from across Iowa have faced off, with the field cut in half each week. To get to the finals, Marshalltown faced off against great projects from Monticello, Pierson, and Wayland.
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!
