Rink Phasing Plan
We have a big vision for Kotler Arena, but we need your help to make it a reality. We’ll share our vision with you here. Please contact us if you have any questions, or become a Kotler Arena sponsor here.
Working with Board Member and architect Rick Baldwin, we have put together a design for the future of our Victor ice facility that is truly world class. We are continuing with the phased construction strategy that began with our first phase (arena building) and second phase (warming hut).
The Future of Kotler Arena
Phase III – Extension and Build-Up
In Phase III, we will expand the length of the facility and the rink itself, allowing for a regulation-size rink, and more space around the rink. We will also raise the “ground-level” height within the Arena to prepare for a time when we are able to provide a refrigeration floor for our ice, which will make it reliably last for a longer portion of the year.
Phase III Total Cost: $369,565
Phase IV – “Saddle Bag” Side Additions
In Phase IV, we will add space to the building beside the ice, allowing for bleacher facilities, locker rooms, storage, concessions areas, and more.
Phase IV Total Cost: $1,725,617
Phase V – Refrigeration of Ice
In Phase V, we will install a refrigeration system in the floor beneath the rink. This will allow us to maintain reliable, high quality ice for nine months of the year, and possibly more.
Phase V Total Cost: $1,429,885
Phase VI – Exterior Landscaping and Outdoor Stage
In Phase VI, we will finish the site around the Arena, planting trees, grasses, and shrubs. We will also complete a covered outdoor stage and amphitheater as an addition on the northern side of the building. This will provide a venue for live outdoor music protected from weather, and could eventually become the new home of Music on Main.
Phase VI Total Cost: $47,541
