Council approves renaming of Abilene Civic Center
ABILENE, Texas - The Abilene Civic Center was officially renamed to the Abilene Convention Center during Thursday's city council meeting.
With the downtown convention style hotel and festival district in the works, council members agreed the name change would benefit downtown Abilene.
This item was presented to city council during their last meeting but was tabled because council members wanted to know how much this would cost before moving forward. The name change will cost around $11,000.
Now that this is approved, the city will begin work on switching the signs.
