“This effort is on the heels of a feasibility study conducted last year by Crossroads Consulting Services of Tampa, Fla., which indicated the facility needs major renovations that could cost millions,” the city said in a prepared statement.

Dayton City Manager Shelley Dickstein said the task force will provide an analysis of the facility and its impact on the community.

The task force is made up on 21 members of local businesses and other local organizations.
