It's been 12 years in the making, and next week the expansion of the former St. Cloud Civic Center will be complete. A ribbon cutting ceremony for the new River's Edge Convention Center is set for 5:00 p.m. on Thursday.
St. Cloud City Council members will get an up close look at the Civic Center expansion when they take a tour tonight. Civic Facilities Director Lyle Mathiasen says the project is on budget and only slightly behind schedule because of winter work and rain this spring. But, he says they expect to open it yet late this fall or early winter.
