After many years of discussion, the city of Thomasville may soon have an event center downtown.

A proposal was submitted to the city by a Las Vegas developer.

The plan is to build a 125 room Hotel, events center and a parking garage that would be located on South Dawson Street at Remington Avenue.

As of now, city council still has to approve the proposal and get help from the community for the final plans.

"It will have to be determined by the community and the city council as to what we really need based on the feasibility study and what we want it to look like, how we want it to function. So there is still a lot of work to be done and the city is going to be relying on the community to help us in that process," said city engineer Jerry Pionessa.

A meeting is planned for July 19, where the community can help decide the size and functions of the center.
