Governor Tony Evers wants state taxpayers to help redevelop a major Madison venue. Evers proposed Wednesday that the state provide thirty million dollars towards redevelopment at Dane County’s Alliant Energy Center in south Madison.
“I’m excited to see this project move forward, and I know it will add value to the entire state of Wisconsin,” Evers said.
The Alliant complex attracts a number of high profile events, most notably the annual World Dairy Expo. Dane County Board chair Sharon Corrigan said the other $47 million for the project will come through public-private partnership, similar to those used to build pavilions on the 165-acre campus
The state money will be included in the capital budget Evers expects to announce next week.
