The 40-year old Hulman Center in Terre Haute could soon be seeing some renovations that include a convention space aimed at attracting athletic and music event as well as a sports museum paying tribute to Indiana State University alum Larry Bird.

The Terre Haute Board of Public Works and Safety this week approved funding to study the feasibility of renovating the ISU Hulman Center.

Terre Haute Republican Representative Bob Heaton plans to see legislative approval to create a sports district. The sales tax in that district would be put into a separate fund to pay for the proposed $35 million in renovations.

“It would mean not only a lot to me, but a lot to the community,” Heaton said. “We’ve had high school ball games there, we of course have had Indiana State men and women’s games there but we also have the area high school graduations there as well as Ivy Tech and a lot of different things going on with that facility.”

Heaton hopes to get the legislature’s approval of the project this year.
