An updated feasibility study has been commissioned to determine if and what kind of convention center could be suitable for Florida State's emerging Arena District. 

During Thursday's Blueprint board meeting, city and county commissioners green-lighted the study. FSU has agreed to pay for it and partner with the Tallahassee-Leon County Office of Economic Vitality for the next six months.
