Many parts of the La Crosse Center are showing their age.
Members of the Center Board are checking some of the older corners of the 39-year-old building.
On Tuesday, the board checked out the main arena, guest dressing rooms and bathrooms.
Renovation consultant Kevin Bills led the board on a tour, saying some facilities need to be ADA-compliant.
The La Crosse Center is hoping to do a $42-million renovation in the next two years.
The arena section of the building still officially carries the name Mary E. Sawyer Auditorium, which was the name of the 1955 civic center that the current building replaced.
Retractable seats at floor level were installed within the last 15 years.
Many of the more permanent arena seats are originals, however, with torn upholstery that retains the building’s orange, red and purple color scheme.
