Columbia Arena

Over 800 hours of citizen input has guided our discussions on the future of the former Columbia Arena site.
Almost 100 residents took the time to attend a series of 4 public workshops in spring 2015 and we sincerely thank you for your dedication and commitment to Fridley. 

The result was a detailed, 7-page recommendation that is currently being reviewed by City leaders.
