Future still uncertain for Junior Arena

 

What to do with the Junior Arena at McMorran Place? That continues to be an item currently under review by the McMorran Civic Center Authority. The St. Clair County Community College would like to use the site for gymnasium and other sports events while a local group of hockey enthusiasts have pledged dollars toward keeping the ice rink available. Former Port Huron Mayor Mark Neal heads up the Authority. He says a meeting with hockey supporters was held yesterday while the college will get their formal say in a presentation set before the board next week. Then Neal expects their consulting group to take a look at the proposals to help the Authority form a decision which won't necessarily be final as any Authority recommendation must then be approved by City Council.
