BACKGROUND

After Sioux Center’s Public Library was destroyed by fire, FEH Associates was hired to design the new library at a new site. This new location meant that the City’s Community Center had to be razed to accommodate the Library.

The City retained FEH Associates to design the new Events Center which replaces the previous Community Center.

In May of 2010, the community voted to approve an increase of the local Hotel/Motel Tax and to use revenue from that tax to build the new Events Center. The Center was constructed at the south side of Sioux Center adjacent to the Holiday Inn Express and The Ridge Golf Course. The lobby and main hall have a beautiful view of the golf course with access to an outdoor garden/courtyard area. The main hall accommodates approximately 450 for banquet style seating and has the ability to be divided into smaller meeting rooms which can accommodate 150 guests or less. The plans call for a future connection to the Holiday Inn Express either by an enclosed structure or through an outdoor courtyard area.

The City received Vision Iowa funding and was awarded LEED Silver Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
