Nationwide building plans move forward
Nationwide is planning to put in a new office building at the entrance to the Arena Grand parking garage. Downtown Development Administrator, Bob McLaughlin, says this project will make the downtown area more appealing to prospective builders.

McLaughlin says if the council formally approves the project at that time construction could begin in early spring.
