"We have had recreation primarily and community events but the idea of having conferences hosted there and other kind of large scale events, we haven't done that much of that," Holland Mayor Nancy De Boer, said.  

"We really think having somebody that does that all the time, everywhere, is the best way to launch a new venue." 

The council will also vote on an agreement to have Holland Christian home basketball games back at the arena.
