The Greater Wichita Area Sports Commission is supporting Heritage Development Group's proposal for the Kansas Coliseum.
Sedgwick County earlier this year sent out requests for proposals for plans to redevelop the aging complex off of I-135 near 85th Street North. It received three proposals: Heritage's, one from North American Management-Kansas and one from Hartman Arena.
Hartman Arena later withdrew its proposal.
Heritage wants to turn the Coliseum into the "Saddle Rock Rodeo Resort," marketing the complex to participant-driven rodeo events.
