Improve Meeting Facilities

To facilitate meetings and special events, greater attention needs to be given to improving Payette’s meeting facilities. The city does have a few private and public meeting spaces but most require improvements to provide the amenities and comfort required to accommodate small conferences, conventions and other events. As a first step it is recommended that a number of the existing meeting spaces be refurbished to increase patronage. In the future a 300 seat convention / meeting facility could be built to fully accommodate an expanding program of events and to support city, county and regional needs. Such a facility could potentially be connected with a future hotel / motel project.
