Neilson Reise on Bemidji City Council work session agenda

The Bemidji City Council will discuss the Neilson Reise Arena in their work session Monday.

The arena has not been in use since March 2020 when the pandemic began.

The city has since opted not to incur the cost to reopen it and has instead partnered with the Bemidji Community Arena to serve local ice needs.

In previous council meetings and work sessions, some discussion has taken place about giving the space to the adjoining Bemidji Curling Club.

The curling club is listed on the work session agenda.
