Corn Palace Renovation Plan To Move Forward
Corn Palace Renovation Plan To Move Forward

A $7.1 million renovation plan for Mitchell’s Corn Palace will move forward.  The Mitchell City Council on Monday night unanimously approved the project, which will be done in two phases.  Doug Dailey, chairman of the Next Generation Corn Palace Committee, says the committee received little feedback on the project from the public.

Phase one will include making changes to the Corn Palace itself, including new light-up domes which will change color, larger murals, and a walk-out balcony.  Larger windows are also part of the plan, which will bring more natural light into the building.  Phase two involves renovation of the adjoining building which currently serves as Mitchell’s City Hall.  A new city hall building is currently in the planning stages.
