HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Governor Dannel Malloy will be taking a tour of the XL Center in Hartford on Friday.
Back in early February, Governor Dannel Malloy proposed a $250 million renovation of the XL Center in Hartford.
The governor and Hartford mayor Luke Bronin sent a letter to the New York Islanders, offering the team interim use of the XL Center and suggesting it as a permanent home for the franchise, which is in danger of being kicked out of Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
Governor Malloy will now be taking a tour of the arena on Friday, February 17th, to take a closer look at the repairs and upgrades that need to be done.
The visit will help highlight the renovations that would best utilize the complex as a way to build economic development and tourism.
The tour will start at 1:15 p.m., and be followed by media availability.
