The Nampa City Council approved Mayor Bob Henry’s request to begin negotiations with Spectra to take over management of the Civic Center.

The Council approved Henry’s proposal in a 5 to 1 vote after an executive session Monday night. Spectra Venue Management, which already manages the Ford Idaho Center, has expressed interest in overseeing both facilities.

The Civic Center has had three directors since late 2013. John Cantlon resigned March 17, expressing a need to spend more time with his family, given ongoing medical concerns for his wife.

“This would give the city an opportunity for consistency in venue operations,” Henry said. “The two entertainment facilities would complement each other – rather than compete – and potential customers could explore options at both places to see what works for them and their event.”

“It’s not good customer service to continually change management at the Civic Center,” Henry said.

“Spectra is in the business of managing entertainment venues such as the Civic Center,” Mayor Henry said, adding that the company had a very successful first year after taking over operations at the Ford Idaho Center.

It is hoped a contract could be in place by May 1.
