ROSWELL, N.M. (KRQE) – The Roswell Civic Center will be getting a complete overhaul soon.
Thursday, the Roswell City Council approved a $6.3 million proposal to remodel and expand the convention and civic center.
The unanimous vote awarded a bid to HB Construction, allowing them to begin work on the project.
Construction will begin in January. They will close the civic center until it’s complete in July.
Officials say the building will be expanding by 15,000 square feet.
This will be the first time it will be upgraded since the former Coca-Cola bottling plant was converted to the Civic Center in the early 90’s.
