Oshkosh Approves D-League Arena Deal

The Oshkosh Common Council has granted approval to a new $15 million arena that could house an NBA Development League franchise. 

The group Fox Valley Professional Basketball is proposing a 3,500-seat arena that will be built as part of a development at the former Buckstaff Furniture Company property in Oshkosh. Officials are moving ahead with the plan, as Oshkosh is one of three finalists–along with Racine and Sheboygan–for a future D-League franchise that will be controlled by the Milwaukee Bucks.

While the vote taken by the Common Council on Tuesday solidifies the city’s support of the privately-financed project, the Bucks have still not committed to one city, a factor that still figures into the fate of the proposal. More from FOX 11:

Organizers say they won’t build the arena without a solid commitment from the Bucks.

Plans for the $15 million, 3,500 seat arena was approved in a unanimous vote.

There is no official word on when the Bucks will announce their decision.
