A battle over management of Savannah's planned arena

April 21, 2019 - 12:37 pm

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia city's plan to hire a management firm to operate its planned arena is being challenged by a competitor.

The Savannah Morning News reports that Los Angeles-based Oak View Group was recently recommended for the job after it scored the highest among three proposals evaluated by city staff.

But the Savannah City Council voted in a closed-door April 11 session to delay consideration after the second-ranked firm, Pennsylvania-based SMG, raised concerns about the selection process.

Groundbreaking for the arena is expected in the fall.
