BancorpSouth Arena could get a new look

By NEMS Daily Journal

TUPELO – The BancorpSouth Arena could get a facelift just in time for its 20th anniversary next year.
The Coliseum Commission approved a budget that would pay $1.8 million to resurface the building’s exterior and freshen up the interior paint.
The building would still be covered in EIFS, or exterior insulation finishing system, but would include a new color scheme to include shades of tan and burgundy and a limestone finish.
The city will have final say on the plan next week. The proposed facelift would take six months to complete and would be finished by the building’s anniversary in October 2013.
