Ramsey County, Minnesota invites West Siders to take a survey to share your input on the future of the West Side Arena:
"Ramsey County built the Ken Yackel-West Side Arena in 1973 to serve the growing hockey population at the time. The arena is heavily used from November through February by youth hockey groups and an in-line skating group in October and March. It is closed from April through September. The use of the facility is predominately by groups outside of the immediate neighborhood.
The West Side Arena project aims to:
1) Provide year-round options for recreational opportunities that are inclusive of racially and ethnically diverse West Side community members’ needs, meet current accessibility standards, and are financially and environmentally sustainable.
2) Build mutually beneficial relationships and partnerships between the county and West Side communities to support authentic and meaningful engagement, work toward community consensus for the future of this space, and help ensure the county is contributing positively to the West Side neighborhood's future."
