Kibbie Dome final enhancements announced

The University of Idaho’s Kibbie Dome is one step closer to getting a makeover. The move comes after approval June 17, from U of I’s Board of Regents and the State Board of Education.

“This set of privately funded improvements to the Kibbie Dome will provide the University of Idaho community, general public, and Vandal fans a more comfortable and enhanced experience while attending academic, cultural and athletic events in the ASUI-Kibbie Activity Center,” Chris Murray, vice president of university advancement said.

Improvements will include construction of a new media and game operations box, conversion of the existing media box, construction of suite style seating boxes, and additional improvements aimed at enhancing spectator comfort and enjoyment.

In February, the university Board of Regents authorized the school to begin the design phase of work. Since then, the university has completed contracts with the architect. With approval of the project, construction can proceed.

The university has a fund-raising goal for this project of $6.7 million. Private funds including cash and pledges right now exceed $6.8 million. The university will move ahead with construction using a short term loan to cover cash flow needs that arise from the difference in pledge payment and the construction payment schedule.

“We would also like to acknowledge the generosity of the donors who have made this project possible,” said Ron Spear, director of Athletics.

The regents also approved an agreement between the University of Idaho and Litehouse Inc. for sponsorship and naming rights. Under the agreement, Litehouse will pay $200,000 a year from 2011 -2015 in exchange for naming the Kibbie Dome premium seating area the “Litehouse Center.”

The ASUI-Kibbie Activity Center not only hosts Vandal Athletics and the Lionel Hampton International Jazz Festival, but also commencement ceremonies, academic conferences, as well as other campus and community activities.
