Update to the Cool Insuring Arena Economic Impact Analysis

December 17, 2018 Bethany Meys | Dina DeCarlo

In 2016, we evaluated the economic impact of the Cool Insuring Arena (then known as the Glens Falls Civic Center) on the tri-county region of Warren, Saratoga, and Washington, NY from August 2015 – July 2016. This analysis can be found here. Using this analysis to demonstrate the economic value of this asset for the local and regional community, the Coalition sought funding for capital improvements and sold its naming rights to Cool Insuring thus changing the name to Cool Insuring Arena.

In 2018, the Adirondack Civic Center Coalition (formerly the Glens Falls Civic Center Coalition) retained Camoin 310 (formerly Camoin Associates) to complete an update to the economic impact analysis based on the two subsequent years: August 2016 – July 2017, and August 2017 – July 2018. The results of that study are summarized in the slide-deck above.
