Conway Expo Center’s event area to be finished

CONWAY — The city is moving forward with plans to finish the north section of the Conway Expo Center, which could cost up to $1.4 million, Mayor Tab Townsell said.

When the $6.6 million Conway Expo Center and Fairgrounds opened at 2505 E. Oak St. in 2010, the city “didn’t have the money at the time” to complete the 14,000-square-foot event-center part of the building, he said. The project was paid for with Advertising and Promotion funds, which come from a 2 percent tax on prepared foods.
