What about the Resource Center?

BROOKINGS – What now for the Brookings County Resource Center?

Commission Chair Stephne Miller says she’s not quite sure.

The County Commission, which owns the Resource Center attached to the Swiftel Center, has been on “standby mode” since the city began negotiating with private developers to build a hotel and conference center on the Swiftel property.

The conference center was to have been located in the space now occupied by the Resource Center, and the county board had agreed to sell its building so the city could proceed with the expansion.

Miller said Thursday that the entire commission hadn’t yet been notified that the hotel-conference center deal had been called off.

Consequently, she said, said the board has made no decision on its next action regarding the Resource Center.
