West Carrollton considering 4,000-seat event center

A western Ohio city is considering building a 4,000-seat arena that would count the Dayton Gems hockey team and Dayton Silverbacks indoor football team among its tenants, the Dayton Daily News reports.

 

West Carrollton is paying a Nebraska consulting firm $25,000 to study building the center in an entertainment district the city is developing, which is expected to include hotels and a water park along Interstate 75, the newspaper reports.

Where do those teams play now? 

 

I don't know Dayton that well, but it seems like Dayton already has a lot of arenas for the size of its metro.  UD Arena, Nutter Center, Hara Arena...would this just be a replacement for Hara? 

 

Man, there are a lot of arenas in SW Ohio.  The three in Dayton, plus Shoemaker/Fifth Third Arena, Cintas Center, the Gardens, US Bank Arena...and that's not even counting facilities at NKU or Miami.

Pretty much.  Hara is aging so I'm presuming they want to capitalize on it (much like a Cincinnati Gardens scenario).  UD Arena and the Nutter Center are both university-affiliated so this would be like a mini-US Bank Arena.
