BISMARCK, North Dakota — The Bismarck Civic Center might be getting a new name — the Bismarck Event Center.

The Bismarck Tribune reports ( ) that the City Commission has approved seeking offers for a second marquee and also has accepted the concept of renaming the building that's undergoing a $27 million expansion. A decision on a new name is not final.

Commissioners agree with Civic Center Manager Charlie Jeske (JEHS'-kee) that the "civic center" name might indicate limited options, and they want to convey that the complex can host many events including conventions and concerts.

Jeske will draft a new marketing plan for the expanded facility and present it to the commission for approval.
