MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - Midland City Council has given the green light for a new Midland Center.
They voted and approved more than $43 million for the center.
The Center will be financed by the hotel and motel funds.
Officials say lack of space caused the current Midland Center to lose out on over 350 events in three years.
This means the new center will host larger events and the city expects the center to pay for itself though the hotel and motel money.
Crews could begin constructing the new center this January.
