$15 million convention center announced for downtown Muskegon

MUSKEGON, MI – A $15 million convention center will be built next to the Holiday Inn and LC Walker Arena in downtown Muskegon under a public/private agreement among the City of Muskegon, Muskegon County and the owner of the hotel.


A letter of intent was approved by city and county commissioners Tuesday calls for the construction of a convention center connected to the arena and the hotel. The city would own and arrange financing for the center, but the money used to pay off the debt and for operating expenses would come from hotel owner Parkland Properties and Muskegon County.
