According to Don Walker’s JSOnline.com story, Marc Marotta said just to be able to maintain for safety issues and basic maintenance, it will cost $100 million over 10 to 12 years.  Marotta said there’s no way for the arena to pay for that itself.

Marotta told the Journal Sentinel, “that’s going to be a public obligation or we will have a building that will be crumbling.  That’s the challenge we face and the challenge the community faces.”

Marotta didn’t detail what parts of the building had deteriorated.  But he and other officials have previously talked about a leaky roof; a deteriorating heating, ventilation and air conditioning system; as well as seating that has been damaged beyond repair.

The Bradley Center first opened its doors in 1988.
