Public Hearing to Discuss $250M XL Center Improvement Plan

The Capital Region Development Authority will hold a public hearing Tuesday night to discuss a $250 million improvement plan for the XL Center in Hartford.

The plan could end up costing taxpayers an additional $6.66 for the next 25 years.

This would allow the authority to add 100,000-square feet of additional space. Right now the building seats 16,000 people and is used for concerts, Hartford Wolfpack games and UConn hockey and basketball games. It was built in 1975 and there have been improvements over the years.

The City of Hartford owns the XL Center and any renovations would need to be approved by the legislature.

The hearing is scheduled for 6 p.m. at the Connecticut Convention Center, Room 21, on Columbus Boulevard in Hartford.
