The City of Roseville’s bonding request on behalf of the Guidant John Rose Minnesota OVAL has been included in the 2020 Capital Budget Bonding Bill passed by both houses of the state legislature.

The House of Representatives passed the measure on Wednesday, October 14, with the Senate following suit Thursday, October 15. The bonding bill now goes to Governor Tim Walz for his expected signature.

Roseville is granted of $3.9 million in the bill, enabling the city to fund critical operational maintenance of the 25-year old facility. Included among the necessary renovations are replacement of much of the refrigeration plant and brine pumping systems and significant required repairs to the concrete refrigeration rink and infrastructure.

Since its original construction in the 1990s, the state’s investment in the Minnesota OVAL has allowed skaters from around the state, country, and world to use, train, and compete at a world-class level right here in Minnesota.

Boasting the largest continuous outdoor sheet of refrigerated ice in North America at 110,000 sq. ft., the OVAL is both a training and competition center for amateur and professional athletes as well as a statewide recreational destination.
