The Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont is ready for a major facelift, which is soon to be implemented. Included in the improvements will be modernized bathrooms, a new paint job throughout the center, including ceilings, walls, and exhibit halls.
The village board signed off on a $80,300 contract with Aria Group Architects. They will be called upon for design development, construction document services and project administration for the project.
Coming in January the board is most likely going to approve contracts for construction work. No costs for the contracts have been disclosed.
Rosemont will probably be able to access state monies to pay for the improvements. The village receives $5 million every year to pay for improvements to the convention center and incentives. The work is expected to take place during 2016.
