St. Charles County Looks to Sell Family Arena

By on July 13, 2018

From St. Louis Post-Dispatch:  St. Charles County may sell its 10,000-seat Family Arena after receiving what it says was an unsolicited offer for the county-owned entertainment and sports venue about a month ago.

The county issued a request for proposals, or RFP, on Monday. After reviewing an offer submitted for the arena on the banks of the Missouri River, the county decided to “take the next step” and issue the RFP, said Finance Director Bob Schnur.

The county’s charter requires it to offer real estate to other potential buyers through an open RFP. Bids are due July 20 at 3 p.m.

St. Charles County Executive Steve Ehlmann said at a County Council meeting Monday night that the county would be under no obligation to sell.

“We’ll have an opportunity to see if there’s a market for the Family Arena, and then we will make a decision if that’s in the best interest of the people of St. Charles County to sell or not sell,” he said.
