Ralston Arena

VSG was awarded a contract by the City of Ralston, NE to perform an operational and financial assessment of this City owned (and then-City managed), 5,000 seat multi-purpose arena located in a suburb of Omaha, NE. Our methodology included interviewing staff, board members, council members, tenants, and other stakeholders in order to determine challenges and perceived opportunities at the arena, as well as understand the overall culture. Our findings, among others, included a recommendation that the City consider contract management for the arena. The City ultimately chose this path and contracted with a large, reputable firm in 2019.
